Can't say enough about how much I love taking my kids here. The exhibits are fantastic and it's just a great family activity and learning experience.
Annual passes are outstanding and very reasonably priced.

Such a beautiful museum. Went with my two year old son and he had a fantastic time! Super hands on and has great facts! You've got to see the Hot Wheels experience. Super fun!

We don't have kids, but still spent several hours here, enjoying the dinosaur exhibit and the various permanent and special exhibits , such as the Transformers and TV production, including being able to take a picture on the Simpsons couch. It was busy when we went (a Friday) and the line to buy tickets very long but moved quickly.

The World's largest children's museum has a great display on the Power of Children and two hours was not enough here. If you're an overgrown kid like me, plan on spending a day here. I could have spent an hour contemplating the Dale Chihuly glass sculpture.

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis was rated the best in children's museum in the world by Child Magazine. It is a fantastic fun place for kids and adults love it too. Home of the world's largest permanent Chihuly glass exhibit that stretches 43 feet high is a wonder of beauty in itself. There's also a beautiful 20th century carousel that shouldn't be missed.

A lot of fun, whether you're a kid or not. But it's even more fun to take a kid, or two, because they love it!! Lots of terrific hands-on exhibits, and the staff is great. Special exhibits are usually well thought out as well.
