The History Museum
Nice museum. Ticket prices are probably a couple bucks more expensive that the entertainment value, but it's still something to kill some time. The got some neat vehicles and local history stuff, but you won't get into the mansion with your Ticket. Wish they would have mentioned that. Not bad though
This museum is a decent way to spend a bit of time. The downstairs portion was more interesting to me, with the highlight being a room about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The rest of the area includes a few historical exhibits, a bunch of objects made in the area, and then another group ordered by function. Some on the main level included wedding dresses, international ties at Notre Dame, and various letters, which I’m sure someone else would enjoy but wasn’t for me. Not bad for a little museum.
We really enjoyed our trip here. I've lived in the area my entire life, but I learned a lot about South Bend when we visited. We'll be back soon.

Wonderfully Maintained Original House The museum was interesting, especially enjoyed the women's baseball league exhibit. The real gem was the house tour. We had a excellent docent and our tour was about 2 hours long. She did a great job answering questions.
