Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States and marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, in 1865 to ensure all enslaved people could be freed following the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation 30 months earlier. Celebrate this time in our nation’s history with a free visit to the Indiana State Museum where you can explore the stories of real people, places and things.
