The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was on my list to take the boys to for a while. During a visit to Indianapolis, we worked a visit into our schedule.


The outside of the museum lets visitors know that this is a place for FUN!




One of my personal favorite exhibits at the museum was the Fireworks of Glass . I LOVED it so much that I dedicated a blog post with my favorite images of different angles of the tower during our visit.
