Dinosaurs Roaring, Carousel Spinning as World's Largest Children's Museum Re-opens to the Public

INDIANAPOLIS, July 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- We missed you, the dinosaurs missed you, the animals on the Carousel missed you and we can't wait to welcome you back for a smart restart of the world's biggest and best children's museum. When the time is right for your family, we want you to know that The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is excited to welcome the public back on July 11, 2020 with limited capacity. It is important to point out that capacity remains limited. Every visitor?including members and donors?needs to reserve an advance ticket.

"Safety is our top priority and that is why we instituted limited capacity and allocated additional resources to deep clean and sanitize the entire museum from top to bottom during our temporary closure. We will continue to deep clean daily for the foreseeable future. We have worked hard to re-engineer our exhibits and interactives, provide new ways to engage our visitors with our interpretive staff, and new ways to social distance and limit person-to-person contact while still creating an engaging and fun family learning experience," said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

The Children's Museum prides itself on highly interactive experiences. At the same time, it is extremely important to re-imagine high-touch, experiential learning environments. As a result, the museum will place an even higher emphasis on having actor interpreters bring stories to life with hourly shows and verbal engagement to encourage visitors to participate in new ways.    

Because the museum cares about its visitors, it developed a task force and advisory committee (consisting of doctors and scientists) to address best practices and conducted surveys to ask families to identify what is most important to help them feel comfortable to return.






The museum enhanced its procedures and re-engineered services and experiences to support family's ability to plan a safe return to the museum. Some spaces such as the Playscape gallery and the Children's Museum Guild's Fantasy Tree of Sports outside in Riley Children's Health Sports Legends will remain closed temporarily out of an abundance of caution. Please note, some of these precautions are TEMPORARY and will be lifted once it is safe to do so.

The Children's Museum is working closely with our food services partner, Levy Restaurants, to develop best practices and protocols. The museum is addressing guidelines from the Health Department including: staff retraining on new safety policies and procedures developed by OSHA, the CDC, and local health department. The ongoing training includes sanitation procedures, social distancing standards, sanitizing, food packaging, and food delivery and storage.

Here are a few interesting facts:

It is the same museum families love with new ways to help keep them safe.
