Historical Center Program Offers Virtual Time Trip

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ An exhibit at an Indianapolis history center offers participants a chance to virtually travel back in time through Hoosier history.

The Indiana Historical Society has added 13 new digital “journeys'' to its programming at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center in Indianapolis. The “journeys'' are part of a program called Destination Indiana.

Destination Indiana allows visitors to learn about the state's history through digital technology, touch screens and displays of historic images and documents. The program taps the historical society's extensive collections of photographs, manuscripts, maps and other materials.

It features eight stations that can each hold as many as six visitors, and a group space that includes a screen larger than 22 feet by 7 feet.

Destination Indiana now includes 287 “journeys.''
