Opening Reception April 6, Exhibit from April 7 through July 7

Paintings straight from an exhibit at the Indiana Statehouse show the variety of talents of current Indiana women artists. They will be joined by a variety of 3-dimensional objects from Women artists in the Haan Museum collection.

Tuesday on the Trail

This free hike is held the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6 pm


Get a closer look at nature as a guide leads you on an educational walk along our Nature Trail. The trail is about a mile long loop in the Museum's three acre woods making it feel very much like a wilderness experience in the middle of town. The hike is both informal and informative, and we start in the Haan Museum parking lot.
