Indy's Child visits Playscape!

Indy’s Child visits Playscape!

September 16, 2013 | 08:56 AM

The climber, the sandbox, the creek, the art and music studios, babyscape, the reaction contraption, the whirly twirly tower, organic hues, and the natural light...oh, the natural light!

Upon stepping into this beautiful space for the first time, I sincerely wished I was five or that my children were still small so we could visit Playscape on a regular basis. The age recommendation for the exhibit is 5 and under, however, older siblings are encouraged to be "gentle helpers and good watchers" by standing back to observe and be on the lookout for smaller children.

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis has planned for every detail and every situation parents and guardians could possibly encounter. The gallery boasts a diaper changing area, easily accessible restrooms inside the gallery, and nursing rooms complete with adjustable lighting, outlets for pumps, and activities to keep older children occupied. The museum has even created a Playscape App!

Playscape was specifically designed for adults to participate with their little ones, so wear your old jeans because you will want to be down on the floor experiencing the gallery from your child's point of view.

On busier days, ask the Playscape greeter for a "QuickTick" so you can come back at a designated time and avoid the line. Also, preschool groups visit the gallery on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. If you are looking for a quieter experience, visit at a different time.

As they say at The Children's Museum, "Join now, and visit often" because one trip to Playscape will simply not be enough! Enjoy this new jewel!
