Reviewed September 20, 2012

Be prepared to spend a good part of the day here with your kids. A fun, interactive museum that my family and I have been going to each time we pass by Indianapolis.

“Do again, and again, and again!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My grandaughter and I have visited the museum three times already this year!! I asked her why she likes going so much - the reply "There's always so much to do, Grandma". Each time we visit I always find different activities - I must admit "The Waterworks" is my favorite. Don't miss a ride on the magnificent carousel, the Chihuly glass exhibit where kids can create their design with imitation glass shapes,the visit to Egypt, Hot Wheels Exhibit, The Giving Tree, the Climbing Wall etc. A VERY interactive museum which continues to evolve every year. (Parking is free and lunch facility is great!!)

“LOVE this place”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The kids love this place. It's a little more expensive than some of the other places around town, but a really great time all the same. They have activities for kids of all age ranges!

“Great for the kids”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I take my kids here every year. There is always a new exhibit. This place is pretty big, so we usually are here from open to closing time!
