A Year of Connections

In 2013, we continued to strengthen community ties through the ongoing implementation of the Mid-North Quality of Life Plan and collaboration with neighborhood residents and organizations to improve the Mid-North neighborhoods for all. The most significant milestone was the ribbon-cutting for Illinois Place Apartments, which has transformed the site of the former Winona Hospital. We also continued to offer our free and reduced admission programs, making it possible for more families to come together and enjoy the museum’s many enriching experiences.

Illinois Place

Illinois Place is another great example of the progress that can be made when the museum along with City of Indianapolis and neighborhood leaders work together for the good of the community.


Neighborhood Initiatives

Sponsored by the Local Initiatives Support Corporation–Indianapolis (LISC), the Mid-North Quality of Life Plan sets out a vision to substantially improve the quality of life of Mid-North residents.



Our StarPoint Summer Camp offered an affordable, engaging, and curriculum-based summer learning experience to 69 campers in 2013.
