Exhibitions and Events


Build a Stage in the Theater Garden Project

Help us build a stage in the Theater Garden for Lafayette Civic Youth Theater and other performances. We have a grant to cover the handicap ramp and foundation, but need lumber, brackets and volunteer labor.

We have received a $6,500 grant from NCHS and a $3,500 grant from the City of Lafayette to begin the installation of a Theater Garden stage for Civic Theatre youth performances and other events. Help us by buying one or more boards or one or more post brackets to attach the posts to the foundation. The boards are ground contact treated for maximum durability and will be used for beams and joists. The post bracket is made of a heavy galvanized metal made for use with treated lumber.

The approximate cost of a 2 x 12 board 20 feet long is $50, and the cost of the post bracket is about $25.

The Haan Museum is a 501(c)3 non profit corporation. This is a tax deductible donation according to the IRS code.

Young and old alike will love the family-friendly Christmas displays at the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art. You'll find Christmas trees and nativity sets in almost every room. There's a gingerbread house big enough for kids to play in, Santas, garland, wreaths, and interactive musical characters that sing and dance and add to the Christmas spirit.

Walk through at your own pace and see historic American landmarks, London landmarks, and Lafayette houses that surround the Christmas trains in several rooms. Take an even closer look at the trains by crawling through a tunnel and watching them from inside the loop.

The Indiana paintings and antiques will remain in place during the Christmas Tours to maintain a homey feel of the Colonial Revival mansion. The Haan Museum is impressive on an ordinary day, and seeing it all decked out for the Holidays is an extraordinary experience.
