Terre Haute Children's Museum

727 Wabash Avenue


To enrich our children's lives through the exploration of science and technology


To create a fun, dynamic science and technology learning environment of the highest quality, which serves as a point of community pride


The Terre Haute Children's Museum opened its doors in 1988 in the basement of the Central Christian Church. Since its early beginnings, it has more than doubled in size and has educated over 230,000 adults and children from over 22 counties in Indiana and Illinois. The Museum's reach extends far beyond its doors by serving the Wabash Valley schools with traveling exhibits focused on weather. The Museum has been the recipient of National Science Foundation Funding. It also participates in a national consortium of 14 science and technology museums.

Our kids love visiting the Children's Museum. There is a great variety of things to do for my toddlers. Love the baby area that has soft play structures and baby toys.

I am a "Big Brother" and my little likes coming here. The gift shop is pricey but they have some cool stuff.

My daughter absolutely loved the Children's Museum. There are so many activities to enjoy and they are all educational. My favorite is the giant bubble.

My girlfriend and I had her youngest sons birthday party here this year. Tons of experiments and chances for the kids to learn, this is a great opportunity for a party with productive fun. Cheapest party in town as well, for around 150 you get a room for 20+ people for about 2 hours and the museum as long as they want to enjoy it.

Kids had a blast. Cost is a little high but membership option may be good
