Milan '54 Hoosiers Basketball Museum, Milan

#106 of 166 in Museums in Indiana
In early 2000, a committee had been formed to look into the possibility of developing a museum in Milan to house the artifacts and memorabilia of the 1954 Milan Indians Team. A commitment from the Ripley County Tourism Commission to see this idea develop into a tourist attraction, also aided in seeing this project move forward.

This core committee formed Milan '54, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in August 2000.

The long-term goal of this organization is to develop the overall experience of this event with a permanent museum and develop the town of Milan to recreate the feeling and flavor of the times in 1954.

  • Its next door to our Blue Olive Cafe. The people are wonderful and the building is a historical Bank. Such a wonderful use of Old Milan Downtown area. There are plans to build a town square in an empty lot across the street. Such a nice thing. Cant wait to get that project under way.
  • A step back in time to single class basketball when there were 750 teams vying for a state championship. The photos, memorabilia, recordings, and videos paint a picture of a simpler time when a very special group of young men did the unthinkable. With items from the movie Hoosiers in place, the story of the Milan miracle seems to come alive as one wanders this iconic venue. Kudos to those diligent souls who put this museum together.
