Each year, the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum presents educational and entertaining programs for learners of all ages. We design our programming to demonstrate the qualities of leadership, ingenuity, exploration, and character that General Wallace embodied throughout his life. A non-traditional learner, Wallace largely educated himself through reading. Later in life, he became a vocal proponent of education of all kinds.

In 2021, our programs will include:

  • Annual Exhibit: Versatile Genius: Lew Wallace’s Creative Endeavors – Learn about Lew’s sketching, painting, sculpture, and musical pursuits.
  • Hoosier Authors Book Club – Meeting to discuss books by Hoosier authors and about important Hoosiers. (Virtual meetings)
  • TASTE! of Montgomery County – Our annual summer fundraiser, this is a festival of sights, sounds, and tastes that can’t be missed!
  • Lew Wallace Hoosier Author Fair – Meet Indiana authors, talk about writing, and buy signed books on Small Business Saturday.
  • Holiday Tea & Fashion Show – Our winter fundraiser, this is a great way to kick off the holiday season!

Because of COVID-19, we cancelled many of our in-person programs in 2020 and 2021. We hope to resume our Dr. Howard Miller Lecture Series in the autumn. In the meantime, you can view videos of many of our past lectures.
