What is the Haan?

it's an art museum. a historic mansion. a sculpture garden. nature trails. it's all that and more, and it's right here in the heart of Lafayette.

The Haan is home to the world's largest collection of work by Indiana artists, displayed in a historic Classic Revival mansion that was originally constructed for the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. Outside you can explore the beautifully maintained sculpture garden, go for a ride on the mountain bike trail, or stroll along the wooded nature trail and forget you're in the middle of a city.
