Start your pedals!

May means racing in Indy—and at The Children’s Museum! Our outdoor sports area will transform into a racing wonderland in the inaugural SpeedFest. Mark your calendars and plan on zooming to the museum for a day of high-energy racing-themed activities.

SpeedFest is included with museum admission and is weather-dependent.

First Tee will be on the replica Brickyard Crossing #10 hole running a closest to the pin challenge with prizes in the Pete and Alice Dye Golf Experience

Noon–1 p.m.
Race against the clock on our Indianapolis Colts Football Experience—make a pass and then slash through the gridiron gauntlet to score a touchdown!

Join us on the Soccer Field for Gasoline Alley, a fun soccer skills competition. Test your skills to see if you can keep your car on the track and avoid sending it to Gasoline Alley
