Situated close to downtown, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis boasts 5 floors of interactive and fun learning with the potential to inspire and transform the way families and children view the world. The main attractions that this museum is well known for include humanities, sciences, world cultures, and the arts.
Exhibits at this highly-praised venue include the “National Geographic Treasures of the Earth” which displays re-creations of famous archaeological sites. These sites include China’s Terra Cotta Warriors, an Egyptian tomb, and an interesting pirate shipwreck.
In addition to these main attractions, other floors showcase many other exhibits and decorative Chihuly glass. This museum is also the home of an extraordinary 12,500-year-old mastodon skeleton and its very own carousel for kids to enjoy.
