Community Initiatives

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis makes its neighborhood a priority. We dedicate significant financial resources and full-time staff toward projects that improve safety, decrease crime, attract and retain local businesses, and beautify the area. Through a variety of programs, we strive to make the museum accessible to as many children and families in Indiana as possible—including those families that cannot afford the cost of admission.

Afterschool Explorers

The Explorers is an extraordinary opportunity for students in grades 3-5 to participate in a fun, hands-on, educational experience at the museum.
