Indiana Bicentennial Train

The Indiana Bicentennial Train is free and open to the public, Thursday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. We encourage school field trips and can accommodate groups of up to 150 students. On board the train, visitors will experience the bicentennial exhibition The Next Indiana, which explores the state’s past through the lenses of transportation, land use, talent and community. In addition, visitors will enjoy performances by noted historical interpreter Kevin Stonerock, share ideas in a creative community space, do hands-on, fun educational activities and shop at the pop-up Basile History Market for Indiana and bicentennial-related items. The Bicentennial Train’s predecessor, the Indiana History Train (2004-2008), saw thousands of visitors at each of its stops. The Indiana Bicentennial Train is presented by the Indiana Historical Society, Indiana Railroad Company and Norfolk Southern.
