Childrens Museum of Indianapolis
While visiting Indianapolis, Indiana a few years ago, our family went to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis which I highly recommend if one is traveling in Indiana. The link is as follows: http://www.childrensmuseum.org
We had a lot of fun as we are a science-loving family. Our little boys really enjoyed digging for fossils not to mention how much fun they had throwing sand at each other but immediately got disciplined as their hair had sand in it as well as their mouths.
We absolutely loved the Fireworks of Glass wherein there are sculptures of blown glass in a very tall tower which was totally amazing. We really enjoyed the science works area as well as the chemistry area wherein the kids could actually do hands on things... we even saw a real brain which was pretty gross in my eyes but the husband and kids loved it and they even got to touch it.
I think the best part for the kids was the hands-on participation they got to partake in. I on the other hand was ready to leave as I was so tired of walking and trying to pacify the little one in the stroller who had had enough after about an hour.
We enjoyed eating as well though it was quite expensive but what the heck as it was our vacation and we were pretty hungry after touring the place.
I believe this children’s museum is the larges in the United States and believe that this is one attraction all families need to see. We probably did not even see half of what this museum had to offer as the adults were exhausted but of course the children were still ready to go see more.
Also another fun thing to do is horse and buggy riding. We took all the kids on a horse and buggy ride which again was expensive but worth it: Here is the link http://www.blueribboncarriages.com.
While riding through the town in Indianapolis we saw a “crazy” driver of a car showing off. My husband and I as well as our kids were amazed as the driver of a right next to us started to drive the car on its side. This car must have been a “special” car as we had never seen anything like it... the driver of our buggy was mad and called the police as she said this was a road hazard.
Nonetheless we had a blast riding through the town on a horse and carriage. After we got off, the kids had to pet the horse and give it a little bit of food
