“20 IN 20” features the many wonderful museums in Indiana

Dear All,

The next “20 IN 20” features the many wonderful museums in Indiana.  There are six different listings for those in Marion County, which really is eight different museums right “in our backyard”.  Throughout our state is quite the variety.  Speedway is not the only place you may learn more about cars – as in Auburn there are two museums:  Auburn Cord Duesenberg and National Automotive and Truck Museum.  Then in South Bend is the Studebaker National Museum.  Interested in military history – Grissom Air Museum in Peru and the Indiana Military Museum in Vincennes are two places to visit.  A really moving museum is CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute.  There are plenty of terrific museums in our state, and featuring many different interests for various ages.  Take time to look them over and explore some of them soon.  Make sure you do check before going for their current hours and policies.  There is so much to discover in Indiana.
