Spaces and Places

Grand adventures await you. From vibrant gift shop to awe-inspiring theater performances, there’s so much to see and do. Here are just a few unique experiences that make The Children’s Museum stand apart.


InfoZone: The Library inside the Museum

Encounter new adventures in this innovative learning space.  Find books related to a museum exhibit and other resources for kids of all ages.  Enjoy arranging gears, shapes, letters on a magnetic activity wall, computer learning games for all ages, and interact with green screen technology!

InfoZone- a unique partnership with the Indianapolis Public Library- is open to everyone; museum admission not required. Have an Indianapolis Public Library card? Check out infoZone materials with your card and you can return them to your home library. Have a valid library card issued by another public library in the state but want to check out infoZone materials? Purchase a Public Library Access Card (PLAC), which is valid for one year and can be used at any Indiana public library. Please visit for more information about PLAC eligibility and cost.

*Current infoZone card holders who are not Marion County residents may continue using their cards until they expire.
