Follow the North Star, our award-winning participatory theater program about Underground Railroad activities in central Indiana in 1836, is now under way for its 19th season. The experience is offered in the daytime to students in school groups and in the evening to the general public. In 1995, museum staff began researching, writing and extensively testing the program with a diverse advisory board that included historians, educators, scholars and a psychologist before Follow the North Star debuted in 1998. Its lessons remain true to participants today. If you have not experienced this powerful program, it is offered Thursdays through Sundays throughout the rest of this month. Tickets can be purchased online and we also have a list of frequently asked questions on our website. Read more about Follow the North Star on our blog or watch video about the program.
