We’re moving to 646 Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis! We’ve reached our Kickstarter goal and with generous donations of services, furniture, and other necessary aspects of the move, we will transition into the new building soon (stay tuned for more information). But there is still work to be done. Please contribute today and help us expand our museum space, make the building accessible to all visitors, bolster our permanent exhibitions, and extend our hours to bring you even more Vonnegut!
Learn about the Kurt Vonnegut Library:
Our new 646 Mass Ave building will provide:
- Increased museum and gallery space.
- A classroom and gathering space for students of all ages who come to learn about Vonnegut and reflect on the importance of free expression, common decency, and the peaceful coexistence Vonnegut advocated.
- New exhibitions, including Slaughterhouse-Five: Time Unstuck, an exhibition devoted to exploring the legacy of Vonnegut’s most beloved novel, and a banned books exhibition offering an in-depth look at issues of censorship in our past and present.
- Expanded arts and humanities programming with a focus on engaging K-12 students, supporting veterans, and upholding human dignity through a new suicide prevention and anti-bullying writing program with middle school students.
