Rated as one of the best Children's Museums in the country, I believe. The Dinosaurs climbing the exterior of the building need to be seen to be believed.

We have enjoyed the Grandparents Plus Two membership for several years. Our grandchildren look forward to all the changing exhibits, especially Jolly Days and the Yule Slide in the winter. We are able to go often enough that they can see a few exhibits, eat in the food court, then see a few more exhibits before checking out the Museum... More

I have been going here since I was a small girl. I never cease to have a child-like sense of wonder on any visit :)

This museum is all it claims to be. The quality of the facility is very good and it is a safe place. Wonderful experience.

Best children's museum in USA. A great and unique place to take the kids. Even adults find it interesting. You can spend the whole day and not cover everything.

We've been to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis twice and both times (first time with children ages 3,4, and 7) (second time with 1 year old) found it to be an incredible experience for the children and the adults. Very entertaining and educational. Fun ! We will return many times I am certain.

My children are grown now, but when they were small they always wanted to stop at the Children's Museum when we passed through Indianapolis. As a teacher in Indianapolis it was always a favorite place for students to have fun while still learning history and science. The water area was the biggest attraction for the younger children.

A great place for younger kids (some teens will find it fun & interesting, too), also an amazing place for a first date - unless you don't like being around children. Food options are not the best, though. This is also a fantastic venue for a wedding or other party/event.
