Located just minutes from downtown, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis features five floors of fun and interactive learning that have the power to transform the lives of children and families across the arts, world cultures, sciences, and humanities. For more information about the popular tourist attraction and museum voted number one in the nation by multiple outlets, please visit our website, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook and subscribe to us on YouTube.

Explore one of the largest collections of adult and juvenile dinosaur fossils, discover modern Chinese life in Take Me There: China, see Dale Chihuly’s 43-foot-tall Fireworks of Glass sculpture, and examine the lives of three children who changed the world in The Power Of Children: Making A Difference.

The summer of 2016 welcomes a new gallery that pays tribute to the men and women who helped make space exploration possible. Beyond Spaceship Earth will have three components: a recreation of portions of the inside of the International Space Station (ISS); a one-of-a-kind, immersive space object experience called the Schaefer Planetarium & Space Object Theater; and an Astronaut Wall of Fame, which highlights astronauts with ties to Indiana.

Costumed actor-interpreters are featured in the museum’s children’s theater and in each of the museum’s main galleries. Visit with real paleontologists in Dinosphere and archaeologists in National Geographic Treasures of the Earth, which examines treasures uncovered from various parts of the world including a real shipwreck in the Caribbean. Photo opportunities include the 16-foot-tall movie prop Bumblebee, from the first Transformers movie, North America’s largest water clock, and a historic working carousel.
