Most children’s museums lean heavy on the indoor playground approach, but Indianapolis offers playground touches drenched with real history, toy history, science and art.
Plenty of places to read about what is new, but it is constantly evolving and is one of the top children's museums in the country!

I love to visit museums and have visited the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Seattle Art Museum and this place is right up there.
We have visited art museums all over the world and this one in Indianapolis rivals those in scope, quality and beauty.

I majored in Museum Studies while in College, and I can safely say this is one of the best laid out and informative museums I have ever been in.
I have to admit because of my hubby, we visit a lot of car museums around the world, and being here at the birth of the Indy 500 was a real highlight for us.

Very few major cities can boast having such a wide variety of first-rate museums, but downtown Indianapolis has all of this -- in spades !
I've visited Indian museums in New Mexico and the Southwest and the Eiteljorg rates right up there with the best.

If you travel and go to museums, purchase a membership in a museum that is connected to North American Association and get in free in large museums in many cities.
My 12 yr old son- (who loves museums) enjoyed the visit thoroughly.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff and different from most museums-live actors portray characters pertinent to Indiana history-very clever concept of stepping back in time.
do as the Hoosiers do, visit museums and view and experience history.

There are very few museums that specialize in this particular area of history, so if you are in Indy a stop here is definitely worth it!

I was able to shoot hoops around by myself in their little makeshift gym, I was able to play on the interactive video games uninterrupted, and I was also able to walk around and see the last part of museum.
We love college sports so we really were thrilled to see this museum Worth checking out.
