American POP: The Galleries for American Arts and Popular Culture

Reminisce about fads or pop culture events that affected your life and learn what shaped those things into becoming hot or hip. American POP: The Galleries for American Arts and Popular Culture will showcase American TV shows, movies, music, and fashion that can bring us together across generations. American POP is a new permanent exhibit that will explore how popular culture has influenced our daily lives in the past and the present, and imagine how it may shape the future.


Following the direction of Governor Eric Holcomb and recommendations from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), the White River State Park (WRSP) Frank Lloyd Visitors Center and the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum are temporarily closed beginning Mar. 17, in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. In addition, all scheduled programs, activities, and events, including those in Military Park have been postponed or suspended during this period. 

This decision was made out of an abundance of caution, to protect the safety and health of our staff, volunteers and visitors. As the situation continues to unfold, a date to reopen and resume activities will be established, based on recommendations from ISDH.
