Hammond Things to Do

Hammond boasts some terrific attractions and entertainment choices for visitors, including exhibits at the state of the art Indiana Welcome Center. A Christmas Story Comes Home is the annual holiday exhibit which brings scenes from the film to life, including Santa's Mountain, where kids can slide down after getting some face time with ol' St. Nick himself.

Enjoy a planetarium and laser show at Challenger Learning Center; a space science education center carrying on the educational mission of the Challenger 51-L crew. At White Ripple Gallery you can see professionally curated art shows that rotate monthly.

Visitors can also check out live performances at The Towle Community Theater, do some high-rolling at the dockside Horseshoe Casino, knock down some pins at Olympia Lanes or splash around at the Aquatic Play Center.

Educational exhibits, holiday fun, live performances, and casino gaming are only a few of the fun and entertaining things to do in Hammond, Indiana.
