Free Admission for your whole family from 4pm-8pm the first Thursday of each month.
Indianapolis parents know that one of the best places in Indy with kids is the Children’s Museum.
You cannot beat the price of admission the first Thursday night of every month — everyone visits for free! Special exhibits will still have a fee but otherwise, you’ll just walk right in!
When we were considering an annual family pass, we used the free days to preview the museum to be sure it would be beneficial for Lulu’s age. We decided to buy a pass when she turned one and we have enjoyed it a lot but we had a lot of fun starting when she was about 9 months old! This is also a great night for working parents to take their kids, it’s the only time the museum is open this late!
There are some fantastic new exhibits to check out while you are there! Get there early! The later it gets, the longer the lines at most of the exhibits and parking fills up quickly! Check out the uncovered lot parking on the right side of the street.
