Bloomington is known as a hub for education, culture, and history.
While our status as Indiana University's home has much to do with that, our abundance of museums is also a heavy contributor. With more than 10 to choose from, our museums make for a great activity when the weather isn't ideal for outdoor fun, or for those who find joy in learning & observing. From art and IU history to fashion and science & technology, Bloomington offers a museum experience for everyone to enjoy. See a historic Picasso painting, learn about the local limestone industry, teach your kids about science all in one day, and more. Admission is affordable at all museums, and at many campus museums, it’s free.
