At The History Museum, you can tour the 38-room Oliver Mansion that was once home to the J. D. Oliver family. All furnishings in the house are original to the home, providing a wonderful glimpse of how the family lived. You can stroll through two acres of lush gardens that surround the mansion and explore the Worker’s Home, a charming cottage reflecting life in the 1930s. In The History Museum’s galleries, you can see compelling exhibits, including a gallery that focuses on Notre Dame history, and learn about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, whose story was immortalized in the film, A League of Their Own. You won’t want to miss the galleries exploring the area’s French exploration in the late 1600s, the pioneer settlement in the early 1800s, the Underground Railroad, and much more. And the young ones in your life will be thrilled with the Pioneer Village located in the museum’s Kidsfirst Children’s Museum. The History Museum is located just eight blocks west of downtown South Bend, adjacent to the Studebaker National Museum.
