SCULPTURE GARDEN TOURS

The Haan Museum of Indiana Art is proud to introduce our NEW Sculpture Garden Tours.  Learn about the amazing artwork and beautiful native plants of the Haan Museum’s Sculpture Garden!  Tours will be led by a docent who will give an in-depth view of our unique outdoor collection. 

Located just behind the mansion, this 0.2 mile wheelchair accessible path features over 25 sculptures by Indiana artists.  A broad and diverse range of works are featured along the path such as figural bronzes, metal sculptures, works in clay, carved Serpentine stone pieces, and glass platters too.  Carved stone African animals are also interspersed throughout the garden to provide a fun interactive safari adventure for all ages.

Tours of the garden are FREE but are limited to only 6 guests per tour. Please purchase a $0.00 ticket to reserve your spot! Reservations are required.  You may register up to 24 hours in advance of the scheduled tour. Please note that each household must register separately, for contact tracing purposes, even if you're coming for the same tour. Masks are required.  Each tour is uniquely different, but all will include the basic information about the sculptures and native plants.

We're very grateful to the Indiana Office of Tourism Development for a grant that helped the project move forward, and to the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette for a grant that further advanced the project.


 

Theater Garden

We're very thankful to the City of Lafayette and individual donors, who helped fund and build a stage in the theater garden. The theater garden (inside the sculpture garden) is used for a variety of outdoor performances.

Thank you to the volunteer master gardener, Brenda Carton, and her gardening team for putting all the effort, care, and love into the Sculpture Garden over the years. We give our gratitude to all the volunteers who take time out of their day to help the Museum!
