One Tank Trip: Indy Children's Museum

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS, In. (WDRB) --Indianapolis is known for a lot like the Colts, Pacers, and Indy 500. One of the places that gets less press, but brings in well over a million people every year is the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

It's a place for kids to let loose and pick up some knowledge about their favorite things, without being in a classroom.

"You can get learning in a fun way," student, Landon Waynescott said.

He and his dad, Daniel, are bonding after making the trip up to Indy from Corydon. They're taking in a little history, and science on their mini vacation.

"We really enjoyed ourselves. There's a lot to do here," Daniel Waynescott explained.

If you're saying "been there done that" to the Indy Children's Museum, maybe you should reconsider. There's a lot of new stuff there that you've never seen before, like Leonardo, the mummified dinosaur.

His exhibit doesn't open for a couple weeks, but it's already getting a lot of buzz.

"According the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the most well preserved dinosaur there is. It's a beautiful animal to see," Paleontologist, Dallas Evans explained.

WDRB got a sneak peak. The herbivore, dug up in Montana, is set to be on display for the next decade in Indy and will add to the excitement already surrounding the popular "Dinosphere" part of the museum. It's just one part of a one of a kind place that has families like the Waynescotts thrilled to make a "One Tank Trip."

Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children on President's Day this year. Otherwise, tickets cost $19.50 for adults and $14.50 for children.
