This was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Very interesting displays, especially if you are interested in antique guns. The full size helicopter and the Shrine Room were very interesting exhibits.

Very good museum. It is chronologically arranged from settlement of IN territory through the war in Afghanistan. There is even a memorial to 911. This is a wonderful museum and is free.
