Kid-Friendly Activities in Indiana

Museums, Zoos, Parks & Sports in the Hoosier State


A family vacation can be an incredible experience for you and the children, especially if plenty of family-friendly activities await at your destination. If that destination happens to be Indiana, plenty of children’s museums, zoos and parks, and spectator sports can be found in the Crossroads of America.

Set aside a day or two for the Children's Museum of Indianapolis – known as the biggest children’s museum on the globe. Explore this five-story discovery center daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or hit other child-friendly centers including Hannah Lindahl Children’s Museum, and the Children’s Science & Technology Museum. Indulge your child’s lust for learning in Indiana.

Not interesting in using your indoor voices? Discover the many outdoor adventures and waterparks in the Hoosier State. Splash the summer away at the Deep River Waterpark near Merrillville, or try hiking, biking, swimming and horseback riding at Brown County State Park – the largest state park in Indiana. See the prehistoric ceremonial mounds at Mounds State Park, or check out the many zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens of Indiana.

Explore Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, or the Indianapolis Zoo in White River State Park. Set in Evansville, the Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden is one of the oldest and largest zoos in the state – and home to more than 700 animals in southern Indiana.

For the little athletes in your family, be sure to see NBA’s Indiana Pacers and WNBA’s Indiana Fever at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, or NFL’s Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Of course if you happen to take your family vacation during Memorial Day Weekend, you can catch the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapols Motor Speedway.

Adventure calls to your family in Indiana, so get packing.
