The Children's Museum of Indianapolis

We had an AWESOME time this past week at the Children's Museum in Indianapolis. It's about 2 hours away from home and so planned Henry's naps so he could sleep as we drove. We packed a lunch and ate outside of the museum. We saw kid-friendly exhibits for dinosaurs, robots, trains, under the sea, outer space, glass blowing, Scienceworks, and it was amazing! They also had king Tut there and we could have paid 5 extra dollars to see him, but that would include an hour long audio tour, and I know Henry couldn't have handled that (nor I) so we bypassed that.

Henry was in awe the whole time, pointing, talking, and playing. We spent about 4 hours there and Henry was not fussy once! I bet he thought he had arrived and was in paradise. They have a baby land where babies can explore and play, and everything's just their size. I highly recommend it for anyone close by.

No, we haven't been to Cave City yet. Are you thinking of coming this way to get there though? Let us know!
