It is called a Children's Museum but is a must see for the entire family. Brought Chinese visitors who at first thought I was insulting them and after convincing them to try it out they couldn't thank me enough for the wonderful time they had.

I have been to the museum several times and it is always enjoyable and I always see something new. It is great for not only kids but adults too. Indianapolis is lucky to have the museum!

I have been to the Museum many times. Every time you go you see something you didn't see before.. Things keep changing and every thing is educational and very interesting.

Took our 9 year old granddaughter again and she loved the visit as much this time as when she went several years back. Fresh exhibits for all age groups!

Indy's children's museum is great for toddlers to adults. Plan to spend the better part of a day if you want to visit all of the exorbitant.

I would allow 3-4 hours. There maybe certain areas that don't interest you or the kids and you can skip those areas.
