The Indiana Historical Society is highlighted in this article for their series of exhibitions entitled You are There, part of the Indiana Experience at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center in Indianapolis.

These rotating exhibitions feature a first person experience for visitors assisted by live interpreters dressed in period costume that portray people and events.

The article chronicles how the IHS founded and funded the Indiana experience as well as its success.

They also offer strategies for organization considering re-working their exhibition experience as the IHS has done.
