Get ready for an all-star summer as The Children's Museum of Indianapolis presents its hottest new exhibit, Rock Stars, Cars and Guitars! From Chuck Berry to the Beatles, from Glam Rock to Grunge, rock 'n' roll has shaped American pop culture and rock performers have dazzled us with their sounds and styles.

Opening June 12, Rock Stars, Cars and Guitars will immerse families and children into music. Go into the Studio, experience the Concert Stage, and enjoy star-gazing as you check out some of rock 'n' roll's coolest costumes, "axes" and rides!

Rockin' Things to Do!

Get in the groove; there is so much to check out! Families and children can:

• Explore the Recording Studio, and listen to music.

• "Twist and shout" on the Concert Stage. Dress up like a rock star!

• (Even a "tiny dancer" can) take part in Stage Presence 101, and learn some signature rock star moves.

• "Work it on out" as you design your own album cover.

• "Come together!" Share memories of concert experiences, and discuss musical tastes.
