Visit the Museum District 

The History Museum and Studebaker National Museum both recently opened new exhibits. "Unveiled: Wedding Traditions" is on display at The History Museum, taking a detailed look at weddings across cultures and through history. "Charged: The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of EVs" at Studebaker showcases the origins and evolution of electric vehicles dating back much longer than you'd think.

Experience Broadway in The Bend
