Celebrating the history and legacy of James Whitcomb Riley, while living in the now.

The staff at the Riley Museum were so accommodating and helpful when it came to setting up a beautiful fall proposal for my girlfriend. They gave me an option for both an indoor and outdoor proposal, had me tour the site multiple times, and listened to all of my ideas and wishes for the proposal. I could not speak more highly of them for special events.


We used the Riley Museum carriage house for a lovely retirement party. We were able to use both the indoor and outdoor space. Amanda and her team were helpful and had everything set up for us to decorate when we arrived. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone as the setting is intimate and located in lovely downtown Indpls.


Great space for formal or informal meetings. The staff went above and beyond in accommodating our meeting needs. Will absolutely look to utilize this space again for future corporate events.


This was the perfect venue for our small wedding (60 guests). We appreciated the incredible customer service, beautiful and historic location, adaptable venue in the carriage house-style Visitor Center, and we even got to make use of the patio and lawn for our guests. The location, in walking distance of the Mass Ave. shopping and entertainment district, is also a plus.


Great place to visit if you want to have a glimpse of a time when poets were rock stars. Almost everything is original and our guide was fantastic at explaining all the details of this home at the same time she unveiled the life of its inhabitants. We had a wonderful experience and do definitely recommend the visit!


The greatest gem in all of Indianapolis.


Great house and tour. Very knowledgeable guides who can handle children.
