Built in 1835, Wylie House was the home of Indiana University's first president, Andrew Wylie, and his family. Today, Wylie House is owned and operated by Indiana University Libraries as an historic house museum. It supports the campus curriculum, providing students and faculty with access to the museum and its collections for course integration and research opportunities. The museum's Morton C. Bradley, Jr. Education Center, situated next door to the museum, provides space for staff offices, exhibitions, and class meetings. Wylie House provides IU students with experiential learning through internships, employment, and volunteer opportunities.

The museum is open to the public for free walk-in tours. These are guided by docents . The museum's collections are available by appointment to researchers, Indiana University classes, and students. Please contact the Director, Carey Champion, at (812) 856-2353 or crchamp@iu.edu to schedule an appointment. A virtual tour makes a visit possible as well!
