Children's museum tops 1.3M visitors for recordJanuary 6, 2020
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The Children's Museum of Indianapolis set an attendance record during 2019, breaking a mark that had stood for a decade.
The museum had just over 1.3 million visitors last year, topping its 2009 record by about 8,300 people, officials said.
Ten years ago, the museum’s attendance was boosted by a King Tut exhibit and the opening of an Egypt exhibit. In 2019, special exhibits included “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds” and “PAW Patrol Adventure Play.”
The new mark also comes after the museum, north of downtown Indianapolis, opened its $24.5 million outdoor Sports Legends Experience in 2018.
Museum CEO Jeffrey Patchen says it strives to provide fun and imaginative exhibits that appeal to all, from children to grandparents.
