I recently made a stop in the historic city of Vincennes, Indiana. That’s a town with much to see, and a history dating back to 1732.  Vincennes is the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in Indiana and one of the oldest settlements west of the Appalachians.

There were a number sites I wanted to visit on my stop there. The Indiana Military Museum, located at 715 S 6th Street, was on my list. It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Thus my problem…I got there about 20 minutes after 4 p.m. I missed inside museum but there is a fantastic display of military items located on the museum grounds so I took a  foot tour. Also, I have made plans to return this summer for a full tour.

According to media releases, the next big event planned at the museum  is a World War I themed event.

The Indiana Military Museum has set the dates for our 2018 WW1 event as March 24thand 25th. Plans are still being finalized but we wanted you to be aware of the dates for this year’s events.

I am really looking forward to getting back for another visit this summer to see what the inside has to offer. Until then, let’s enjoy these pictures of some of the outdoor displays.

The Indiana Military Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Group tours are available upon request. Learn more and plan your visit.
