INDIANAPOLIS — The dinosaurs are prepared. They have facemasks on and cannot wait to safely and responsibly greet children and families. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is excited to announce a phased reopening of the museum, beginning with our members and donors.

  • June 20, 2020: The museum will host a private reopening to a small internal audience with very limited capacity…far below the 50% capacity regulations set forth by the mayor and governor.
  • June 24, 2020: Museum opens to donor families only
  • ‪June 29, 2020: Museum opens to member and donor families only
  • ‪The museum will announce its public reopening date later this month.

Advance tickets will be required for members and visitors and capacity is limited. Members and donors should check their email for a link to reserve their tickets, or call 317-334-4000.

The health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority. While we’ve been apart, our staff has been working hard to prepare to welcome everyone back.

In collaboration with an advisory council of scientists, physicians, and public health officials, the museum has implemented new policies and procedures to ensure a safe visit for families. Those measures include cleaning and sanitizing the entire museum from top to bottom, adding more stations with hand sanitizer and wipes, implementing social distancing measures, and requiring visitors to bring their own face masks and wear them if they are two-years-old or older.
