“Worth bringing your kids on a business trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

You won't believe it unless you visit. Everything from pre-school interaction to an incredible Chihuly glass chandelier that extends for several floors. Plan on spending the day- you might as well since the kids won't want to leave anyway and you don't want a scene, do you?

“We go often and are never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

If you live in or near Indy, you owe it to your kids to take them here. We bought a family membership and it has paid for itself many times. There are things for kids of all ages, workshops, a planetarium, and always a changing exibit. We saw the gekkos last time which were interesting and fun to see.

“Explore and Marvel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is an awesome place to take the whole family. We have been members for a couple of years. They have so much for you to see at the Children's Museum. You can take very young children and older children. They will have something for all ages. It is interesting to explore the different areas of the museum. The Dinosaur exhibit is one that you will not want to miss. They have LIFE SIZE Dinosaurs the kids will really enjoy this exhibit. In the winter they have an large slide that you can go down with your parents. It is so much fun for the kids to see mom and dad coming down the slide. You get to be a BIG KID again. Have a Great Time I know you will.
