About The Propylaeum
Nestled in the Old Northside historic district, the Propylaeum, is a vital part of the city’s future as well as a cornerstone of its history. Founded in 1888, our mission is the place that connects and celebrates women.
The Indianapolis Propylaeum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for free self-guided tours of the mansion and grounds.
