Summer Fun for Families at The Children’s Museum

July 01, 2011

Summer is the time when families get to unwind, relax and enjoy each other’s company by spending lazy days together washing the dog, splashing in the pool, planting flowers, taking walks or going on awesome vacations and adventures.

OK, so maybe those activities aren’t exactly “relaxing,” but they will create wonderful summer memories. The Children’s Museum has many opportunities for families of all ages to come and spend valuable time together during our family-oriented programs and activities, either right here at the museum or around the country.

The Children’s Museum offers exciting opportunities for families to learn together during our family programs. This summer, we have many great learning experiences for you to enjoy. In August, Summer Science: Teeny Tiny Science will let your kids explore the world of tiny objects such as DNA and atoms. The Museum’s Biotechnology Learning Center will help you discover the amazing nano world unseen by the human eye.

Other exciting summer opportunities for families who want to travel include a dinosaur dig in Faith, South Dakota and a day trip to the American Girl Museum in Chicago. At The Children’s Museum, you can help Dr. Noize write, record and mix a brand new song in 90 minutes or help designers create fairy creations for Barbie in Barbie: The Fashion Experience.

Our programs are offered not only during the summer, but all year long! This allows you to have mini-vacations any time right here in Indianapolis. During the holiday season we have awesome opportunities to have breakfast with Santa and to check out the Museum’s stuffed animal collection during Jolly Days.

At The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, we strive to create an atmosphere where families can enjoy time together while learning and having fun. Family learning is the best kind of learning. Come to the world’s largest and best children’s museum and have a great summer!
