January 5, 2021 Visit USA No Comments

2020 is thankfully in the rearview mirror and it is time to look forward to inspiring family-fun things to experience in 2021 at the world’s largest children’s museum – The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

From inspiring real life role-models such as Amelia Earhart, Katherine Johnson, Laurie Hernandez, Florence Nightingale and ELLA FITZGERALD® (who are each portrayed in Barbie™ You Can Be Anything™: The Experience) to the only permanent exhibit focused on the youngest person to ever be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize–Malala Yousafzai, 2021 will focus on superheroes (real and imagined), adventure, fitness, positive change and diversity.

Nickelodeon’s Dora and Diego- Let’s Explore! (Feb. 6–July 25, 2021)Get ready to explore with Dora and Diego in Nickelodeon’s Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore! The exhibit features beloved characters Dora and Diego from Nickelodeon’s hit preschool series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!, along with their friends Boots, Map, Backpack, Isa, Tico, and of course Swiper, now in their own exhibit for preschoolers to explore as they learn and play along.

SUE T.rex from the Field in Chicago (March 6-July 25, 2021) SUE the T. rex will be visiting The Children’s Museum from spring break through the summer. Rumor has it that our very own Bucky the T. rex raised her short little arms to the sky and roared with delight! The Field Museum is sending a full-sized cast of SUE (one of the largest, most complete, and best-preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever unearthed) on a mini vacation to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. At more than 40-feet-long and 13-feet-high, SUE is remarkable because of its size, completeness, and quality of preservation.

DC Super Heroes™: Discover Your Superpowers (March 20–Sept. 26, 2021)Earth needs more superheroes. Will YOU answer the call?

***Malala Yousafzai’s story within The Power of Children (Opens Sept. 18, 2021)We are thrilled to add Malala Yousafzai as the fourth child in The Power of Children: Making a Difference®. This will be the ONLY permanent exhibit featuring Malala Yousafzai in the world! Malala is a Pakistani activist for female education. She became the youngest person ever to be awarded the Nobel Prize. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her home of Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Malala used the Power of Education to fight for human rights. The expanded portion of the exhibit will feature her life, the challenges she faced as she attempted to get an education and the positive impact she has had around the world. We will recreate her home in the Swat Valley and present information about her life—showing how she used the family computer to express her message. The exhibit will feature her legacy and also showcase other girls who stood up for the right to attend school. Support for Malala Yousafzai’s story is provided by National Endowment for the Humanities, Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, Inc., and U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, Lauren Sparkman, and Mike and Kristin Sherman.

Mini Masterpieces (permanent exhibit – recently reimagined and opened Oct. 17, 2020)One of the longest-standing permanent exhibits at The Children’s Museum has a new home on Level 4. Using the incredibly detailed worlds of miniatures, the reimagined Mini Masterpieces exhibit will bring these fascinating mini creations to life and provide space for your family to create your own stories. Discover the secrets hidden in each room. One that is sure to surprise includes transparent illusions of people moving around a room who magically appear or when families create their own room with a portrait of themselves hanging on the wall that they can email home. All the miniatures in this exhibit were built using a 1 to 12 scale. That means one inch in the miniature room equals one foot in real life. This precise scale can trick your eyes and make the rooms appear extremely life-like. That is the beauty and wonder of this newly re-imagined exhibit featuring hundreds of miniature pieces of furniture, artwork and artifacts. Mini Masterpieces is made possible by the generous support of the Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundation.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is proud to partner with Riley Children’s at Indiana University Health, Old National Bank and Ice Miller LLP.
