INDIANAPOLIS — 'TIME for Kids' magazine released the ranking of the 'World's 50 Coolest Places' of 2019 on Thursday and Indianapolis' very own children's museum is on it.

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is listed under the best places to learn in the article.

Here is an excerpt from the reviewer, Rebecca Katzman:

"There are many children’s museums, but none are quite as amazing—or as expansive—as the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. After all, it’s the largest children’s museum in the world. Here, kids can learn about dinosaurs, ancient Greece, outer-space artifacts, and much more. In 2018, the museum opened the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience. It’s a 7.5-acre space where kids can play while learning about the history and culture of sports. Experts are on hand to coach young athletes. They can help them use their newfound skills in football, basketball, hockey, golf, car racing, and other sports. Kids can also sculpt their own sports figures or record a TV-ready sports broadcast."

The list of the world's 50 coolest places shines a light on the most educational, innovative and fun destinations for kids.

Nominations for the list were made from young readers around the world, through the 'TIME for Kids Kid Reports.'

“We are honored to have such a notable, global magazine recognize the world’s largest children’s museum with such a prestigious honor,” Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum, said. “The best part is that we were selected by children and families who visit, engage, and immerse themselves in the rich arts, sciences and humanities-based experiences we provide. Our goal is to transform lives in positive ways and we are thankful for this wonderful acknowledgement of the success of our work.”

If you're a college student and want to check out the children's museum for a discounted price, you can through January.
