The Children's Museum of Indianapolis Dino Sphere is a must do if you are going to the nation's largest children's museum! My youngest son is absolutely obsessed with dinosaurs. He loves Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, plays with the toys all the time. He even has a birthday coming up and it's Dinosaur themed.
We recently went to Indianapolis for a weekend trip to celebrate my middle son's 13th birthday. He wanted to stay in a hotel and go to the museum. We have never been there before and we were all so excited to visit. We got up early on a Saturday morning and headed to the museum to be there when it opened, so we could spend the day seeing and doing everything. Dino Sphere is located to the right of the entrance. We went there first and spent a lot of time seeing all that they had.
When you enter the Dino Sphere you will get to see full size dinosaur skeletons, be able to dig for dinosaur bones and touch a real T-Rex bone. My boys loved using the equipment to dig up the fossils. They also got to see a real lab where they were carefully dissecting a fossil found out in the desert. They had been working on it for months and one of them talked to us about it through a small window from the lab.
There is so much hands-on activities in Dino Sphere that even young children will have a blast, while older children can learn as they do the activities. Making learning such a fun thing to do! I love when our family trips are educational for all of us. Be sure to visit Children's Museum of Indianapolis Dino Sphere if you get a chance this summer, before the kids head back to school.
Disclosure: My family paid for the entirety of this trip. Admission prices are cheaper if purchased online in advance.
