Dubbed the " Indiana Experience," the exhibits represent the first ticketed tourist attraction at the society's headquarters building on the downtown canal in Indianapolis. The new attraction is part of a $17 million renovation at the organization's headquarters, the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center, at 450 W. Ohio St.

John Herbst, Historical Society president and CEO, said the Lilly gift "brings us into the homestretch of the campaign for the "Indiana Experience." With the Lilly grant, the society has raised $14.4 million.
