I've always loved taking my kids to the children's museum. I'm disappointed that they got rid of the construction area. Also it seems prices have gone up substantially. The space exhibit seems to be lacking. I'm hoping they can start making it better. I've heard several kids on my last trip wanting more fun things to do and personally I think that's what the top floor used to be. Ready for the Hot wheels exhibit to open. My kids love that one

The Indianapolis Children's Museum is a wonderful place to visit for children of all ages. We have had a membership since our oldest was born. The baby zone is great for little ones to crawl and walk in a safe cushioned area. It is also enclosed, so you do not have to worry about them getting out of the area. My two older kids still enjoy going as much as they did the first time we visited the museum. The new outdoor sports area is awesome and rotating exhibits keeps the museum fresh and new.

We had the most amazing day at the Children's Museum today. We were anxious to visit the sports area they just opened. The experience went far beyond the expectations we had. It is the perfect family interaction complex ever. Families can do their own thing at their own pace. Or for an added adventure meet new families and everyone interact together. I found by watching everyone it brought back many of my wonderful childhood memories. So I strongly suggest that you and your family jump in the car and go to the Children's Museum. It's truly an experience you won't soon forget.

We took our grown kids (18-24) back for a nostalgic visit when we were in town for a wedding. We moved away 12 years ago. We were rather disappointed. Of course some of it might have been just less cool when there weren't children's eyes to see it through, but I don't think that was the main reason for our disappointment. The museum has changed. It is less interactive and more "glossy." It now seems to focus on pretty displays more than hands on learning. Sure it may look prettier, and definitely there is something to be gotten from the exhibits, but it was the get down and dirty things that the kids always loved the most and learned the most from. It's as if it has been sanitized and kid proofed to make some adults happy. Glad my kids were young and we lived in the area and the museum was still great. Feel bad that the newer generation missed it.

Indianapolis children museum is one of the best children's museums that we visited. It's rated top in the world among the children's museums. It's good for kids up till 10 years with wide range of topics that kids enjoy while learning and playing. Kids under 5 get a special play area where they enjoy all kinds of activities while playing. Moreover the newly introduced sports legends experience is much fun and kids love it a lot. Worth visiting now and then.
