“the largest children’s museum in the world”

With 472,900-square feet, more than 120,000 artifacts, and over 1 million visitors each year, we are the largest children’s museum in the world. Since it was first established in 1925, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis has expanded to become one of the top-ranked, most-respected children’s museums in the nation, providing one-of-a-kind experiences that range from our immersive Dinosphere© to the exquisite, five-story Fireworks of Glass sculpture by renowned artist Dale Chihuly.

The Children’s Museum is at the forefront of creating learning experiences with the power to transform the lives of children and families. We are also a pioneer in both the education and museum worlds, offering engaging exhibits, interpretive activities, standards-based school programs, and teacher development workshops. About The Children's Museum.

An important part of our success takes place outside the walls of the museum, through neighborhood partnerships, community outreach efforts, and the positive economic impact of museum attendance on the economy of central Indiana. We welcome visitors from across the country and around the world, and are honored to serve our friends from the Hoosier state as a neighborhood partner, a community advocate, and a cultural leader.

Check out the adults only night if you want kid free zone! It's great that you can bring your own food in too when taking the kids. There is plenty of table space in kitchen area. The museum is ever changing and is always a good place to go when the weather plays tricks. Very much worth the membership!

By far the most impressive children's museum I have encountered. So engaging and interactive. Nothing was left out in details when creating this 5 level maze of wonder. A definite must experience!

Great children's museum. We thought pricey for a family of six but it was a good value. Lots of fun for whole family!! Bonus free parking in ramp but get there early.
