Indy’s best winter party, Museum by Moonlight®, is beckoning you to “beam yourself up” to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis to have an out-of-this-world grownup (21 and up) evening filled with fun, food and libations. Dance the night away to many genres of music, including a Silent Disco with the Dino’s. Enjoy food and drink from restaurants all around the area.
