Think “Indianapolis” and the Indy 500 springs to mind. But this capital city that’s known for fast cars also boasts a remarkable children’s museum featuring five floors of nonstop fun. That’s just one of the examples of what families can do in Indianapolis.
And there’s no better place to use as your home base than Conrad Indianapolis.
First, plan ahead to keep the kids busy. From the arts and sports to world cultures, science and the humanities, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis promises to wow them from the moment they see the giant brontosaurus climbing onto the building outside.
Just minutes from downtown Indy, the museum inspires curiosity though exhibits such as Fireworks of Glass. The 43-foot-tall sculpture by renowned artist Dale Chihuly features over 3,200 pieces of glass.
Interactive learning opportunities abound in galleries such as Take Me There: Greece, where kids can shop in the market, make popular Greek foods, and study traditional music and dances.
Family photo op? Absolutely! How about the 16-foot-tall movie prop Bumblebee from the first Transformers movie?
Back at Conrad Indianapolis, the kiddies will enjoy the indoor pool, while parents can indulge in the spa and salon treatments.
The entire family will pull up a chair at The Capital Grille, featuring dry-aged steaks, seafood and seasonal daily specials in a relaxed setting.
Afterward, adults can retreat to Tastings – A Wine Experience, where they can sample from over 200 vintages. Voted “Best Wine Bar” by Indy A-List three years in a row, Tastings serves up the largest by-the-glass wine list in Indianapolis.
Of course, the crown jewel of Conrad Indianapolis is The Collection, a group of luxury suites featuring originals by Dali, Picasso and Warhol, among many others. Another convenient perk: The hotel’s skywalk connects to Circle Centre Mall and the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium.
Reserve your suite from The Collection at Conrad Indianapolis and your family is sure to have plenty of room. Allow the concierge to arrange your visit in Indianapolis to experience all this exciting city has to offer.
