Every year, thousands of students, families and individuals come to the Statehouse and Library to learn about state government, see Hoosier history in-the making, marvel at the architecture and to find out how government works for them. The State Education Center exponentially enhances visitor experiences by supporting social studies and language arts curricula and offering interactive, dynamic exhibits focused on how Indiana State Government supports Hoosiers of all ages. It is housed on the ground floor of the Indiana State Library.
Discover treasures from collections of the State Library and other government offices using an interactive tablet and learn interesting facts and stories about Indiana’s history.
