Heritage Museum and Gardens
What began as a personal collection of antique automobiles has grown into a museum collection of 18,000 items. Mr. and Mrs. J.K. Lilly III dreamed of sharing their collections with the public and opened Heritage Museums & Gardens in 1969.
Today the collection still features those automobiles (on view in the J.K. Lilly III Automobile Gallery), as well as American folk art, fine art, militaria, Native American artifacts, and an operating 1908 Looff carousel. Limited selections from the museum’s Heritage Collection of art and artifacts are on display in the Heritage Highlights exhibit in the American Art & Carousel Gallery.
The crown jewel of American motorsports is at Heritage Museums & Gardens! Start Your Engines! Cars and Stars of the Indy 500 featuring some of the most renowned cars from this high-octane event.
