When: Fridays, Saturdays, 12-1 p.m. Continues through Oct. 31 2014
See the Indiana Landmarks Center at the former Central Avenue Methodist Church on free public tours each Friday and Saturday, May through October. 45-minute tours highlight the history of the church -- once the largest Methodist congregation in the state -- including its legacy in Indianapolis. Learn about the church's decline and the building's endangered status before a multi-million-dollar restoration transformed it into a spectacular new cultural venue and state headquarters for Indiana Landmarks. You'll see the restored public spaces, and go behind the scenes for a look at modern updates that make the nineteenth-century church a twenty-first-century marvel.
Tours begin at noon in the main lobby of the building. No reservation required, except for groups of 10 or more. Guided tour admission: Free for regularly scheduled public tours. Groups of 10 or more must make a reservation in advance and pay group tour rates (see below). Group tours: Private group tours can be scheduled year-round. Discounted group rates are available for groups of 10 or more. Private group tour admission: $5/adult, $4/senior, $3/child or full-time student. Private group tours are free to members of Indiana Landmarks.
