Collage of programs at the StudyExplore our programs! Each year, the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum presents educational and entertaining programs for learners of all ages that demonstrate the qualities of leadership, ingenuity, exploration and character that General Wallace embodied throughout his life. Wallace was a non-traditional learner and largely self-educated, but late in life he was a vocal proponent of education of all kinds.


In 2016, these programs will include:

  • Annual exhibit – The Golden Age of Indiana Literature: From Ben-Hur to Alice Adams – Focusing on the years from 1880 to 1920, our annual exhibit explores the great literary contributions Hoosiers have made over the years.
  • Behind the Scenes Tour – See the Study basement and our artifact vault. This is scheduled for May 14.
  • Hoosier Authors Book Club – Join us as we read books by various Indiana authors.
