Indianapolis has a beautiful downtown full of exciting adventures for children of all ages. Did you know that White River State Park encompasses a lot of these opportunities and there’s a special day of the month where you can access many of them at a discounted rate? That’s right, you read correctly. Until Dec 6, 2016 there’s a secret in town and it’s called Community Tuesdays.
On the first Tuesday of every month, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art offers a deep discount. Tickets are only $6 for adults and seniors (normally $13 and $11) while children are FREE. Bring along the whole family at the discounted rate and explore the tribal art and fascinating culture of Native Americans.
Another perk of Community Tuesday is a half price ticket to the Indiana State Museum. This is a personal favorite of ours. Tickets are normally $13 for adults and children 3 and up usually cost $8.50. However on Community Tuesdays, it’s 50% off! Children of all ages can appreciate this unique museum, even our two year old had a blast exploring geological specimens and learning about Johnny Appleseed. (Please note the discount applies to standard exhibitions).
Here’s another super enticing deal. Do your kids like movies? How about a state of the art screen that makes them feel like they are a part of the action, flying high up in the sky or exploring our deepest oceans. The IMAX Theater is a part of The Indiana State Museum and on Community Tuesdays you get an extra $2 off!
Maybe you have a sports lover in the family? The NCAA Hall of Champions offers $3 tickets on Community Tuesdays. The NCAA features two levels of engaging exhibits including sports simulators. That’s sure to get the adrenaline going for your sports enthusiast.
Finally, there’s nothing like enjoying a baseball game on a warm Indiana night. The Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field offer $2 off the ticket price (home games) when you either 1) show your membership to another participating attraction or 2) show the same day’s ticket stub from another attraction also participating in CommunityTuesday.
So, what are you waiting for? I hope to see you and your family at next month’s Community Tuesday. All of these extraordinary downtown Indy adventures are at your fingertips on this special day.
