Description

With five floors of exhibits covering nearly 473,000 square feet of floor space, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is America’s largest children’s museum and a blockbuster tourist attraction in Indianapolis. The iconic Dinosphere exhibit lets kids ogle life-size models of dinosaurs, hunt for fossils in simulated “digs,” study specimens in a paleontology lab, and view one of the largest collections of dinosaur fossils in the country. Other exhibits include a planetarium, an age-appropriate biotech learning center, and haunted house. A family could easily spend an entire day at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

Moms might do well to take snacks and drinks in the stroller if you aren't going to actually "eat" while there.

Long lines to get in, bring snacks or handheld games to keep the kids from getting antsy.

Indianapolis is a great weekend destination. They have a great zoo and their downtown area is very walkable to many attractions.
