The Athenaeum is a historic treasure that strives to uphold the mission of its founders and to serve as a gathering place for diverse communities in Indianapolis. Whether you are looking to assist in the maintenance and care of this beautiful building and grounds or volunteer for one of our heritage events, the Athenaeum Foundation welcomes all.
From cultural event seekers attending concerts in the biergarten and special events to members of the YMCA and Rotary Club of Indianapolis, as well as diners at the Rathskellar over 300,000 people pass through our doors annually and 6,000 people attended the 1st annual GermanFest.
