Around the building are unique artworks created by artists from all over Indiana. There is a huge mastodon statue around which children can run.

Unlike the form of the collection, there is no connection between the museum's secondary façade, which is opposite NCAA headquarters and the Indianapolis Downtown Canal, and the Grand Hall. Indiana is called the "Way of the Cross of America" and after its opening on the Central Canal, the Great Hall became a crossroads museum. Linked to this is the Indiana State Museum, Indiana's largest and most important museum, with a collection of more than 2,000 artworks. To register, qualified families must visit one of the venues listed below to register online (or to register by renewing an existing access pass). Access along the canal is also possible with a pass for $5 per person, $10 per family or $50 per year for a family of four (passes can be purchased).
Special membership times are on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm, on Sundays and holidays and on special membership hours from 5 pm to 7 pm.
