Mission & Vision
Railroads transformed America with ribbons of steel, linking communities and moving people and commodities from coast to coast. The Indiana Transportation Museum preserves this legacy by immersing guests in moving experiences. It links destinations throughout central Indiana, offering unique cultural encounters. ITM engages and inspires future generations through the art, science and technological innovation of the railroad.
The Indiana Transportation Museum will be a trusted institution for conveying knowledge of the railroad and its art, history, science, and technology, with particular emphasis on its role in Indiana’s commercial, cultural, and social development. It will become a vital part of central Indiana’s transportation system, connecting cultural sites and events through unique, mobile experiences.
