Easy parking, something for everyone, lots of interactive exhibits even for toddlers! Ramps from floor to floor or elevators. Love the Dale Chihuly ceiling and glass works.

Anyone who is coming to Indianapolis should schedule a trip to the Children's Museum. It is one of the best in the world and will be having a new exhibit on China, complete with the clay soldiers until November, 2014. You do not have to have children to enjoy the museum, it is for all ages.

There is floor after floor of things to see & do. As you pull up outside & you see the Dinosaur sticking out of the building, you know you are in for a real treat. You "MUST" stop & watch the "Water Clock" ~~~ Awesome ~~~ Visit & you will not be disappointed

We have visited the children's museum many times. The traveling exhibits change every couple months and the permanent exhibits can appeal to all ages. Much of the museum is hands-on for kids. There is a good cafeteria with plenty of seating. The place is handicap friendly.

Kids won't be disappointed. Prices were fair. Great for adults, too. This time we scheduled in advance for our daughter to do rock climbing. Must do. Otherwise the kids won't get to rock climb.

I'm proud to think that indy supports a museum of this quality. I'm old enough to remember when the museum was just a big old house. the dinosaur exhibit was in the solarium of the house. you could see the whole thing in about an hour. now it is premier. Kudos to my home city for it's dedication to the... More
