Party like a grown-up at The Children's Museum!


And you thought The Children's Museum was just for kids! Check out this end-of-summer event in a news release from Leslie Olsen, Manager of Public Relations at the museum:


Want to dance with dinos, learn about the science of beer, team up with friends to test your athletic ability and eat and drink a libation or two along the way? That’s just some of what 21-and-older revelers can expect when they party at Museum by Moonlight on Saturday, August 27, from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will be open from top to bottom, indoors and out, to give big kids at heart an evening to remember. Check out the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® featuring a dozen different sports outdoors. Inside, study the clues to solve the mystery of who stole the family jewels in SCOOBY-DOO!™ Mansion Mayhem, and don’t forget to take a spin on the carousel. Other special activities include:


  • Walking the red carpet

  • Silent Disco with DJ Big Baby

  • Have lots of laughs with Comedy Sportz: Improv Comedy with a Twist

  • Enjoy beer tastings at the "Science of Alcohol" mixology sessions hosted by Sun King Brewing and Republic National Distributing Company.

  • Sample different bourbons

  • Snap a selfie with the Circle City Ghostbusters
