The History Museum contains interesting regional history, including exhibits on the found- ing and emergence of the University of Notre Dame, and is also the national depository for the All-American Girls Professional League, which inspired the movie "A League of Their Own." The museum is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of the popular film. "In the evening, guests could have a reception in the lobby area," said Marilyn Thompson, who handles marketing and community relations for the site. "We can set up a bar, and people can mill around and visit with each other and enjoy the changing museum exhibits." Groups can also visit the 38-room Oliver Mansion next door, which was built by a local industrialist in 1896. "If you bring a group of 100 people, for example, every 20 minutes, a group of 12 could walk over to the mansion and tour all of it or just the first floor, which takes just 15 to 20 minutes," said Thompson. South Bend visitor favorites include the Golden Dome at Notre Dame (left) and the Studebaker National Museum (right).
