INDIANAPOLIS (AP): The Bicentennial Train will make a return trip to the Indiana State Fair next month.

The train, sponsored by the Indiana Historical Society, is a rolling museum that will be stationed at the state fairgrounds in Indianapolis Aug. 5-21. The three air-conditioned boxcars will highlight 200 years of Indiana’s history as a state.

The exhibit in the first boxcar explores early state history up to 1900. The second car covers the next 100 years and the third car illustrates Indiana history from 2000 to the present while also looking to the future. The exhibit uses several hundred images from Historical Society collections to explore the state’s past.

The Historical Society invites fairgoers to hop aboard daily between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
