The Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science is located in Evansville, Indiana, and their mission is to expand our knowledge and enhance our lives through the power of exploration, preservation, enlightenment, and amazement. Their hours are from 11 am – 5 pm on Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11 am – 8 pm on Thursdays, 12 pm – 5 pm on Sundays, and on Mondays and Tuesdays the museum is closed. There are several different kinds of programs that they have to offer at the museum such as; Family Programs, Lectures and Workshops, Trips and Excursions, and Summer Day Camps. With the Family Program you are able to bring your family in every second Thursday of the month from 5 pm – 7:30 pm (free of charge) and attend Family Board Game Night, and you are also able to bring your kids down to the museum every second Saturday of the month where from the hours of 11:30 am – 12:30 pm they can experiment in journals with different mediums of art like learning how to collage, use stamps, crafts with paper, and much more. The program is included with museum admission and kids from ages 6-10 are invited to join the fun.

At the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science, there is rarely, if there at all, permanent exhibitions to be put on display, but instead they have artists display their work in the museum gallery and it is there for a certain amount of time before the next talent comes in to display their work. When local artists aren’t on display, the museum rents exhibits, such as the Outreach to Space that comes from the San Francisco Exploratorium. Outreach in Space teaches people of all ages about space as well as space travel.
