The Children's Museum of Indianapolis will this morning name the sports legends who will be immortalized in the Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience. The announcement will be followed by an update on construction of the $35 million experience, which is set to be complete in March 2018.

Several of the legends will be on hand for the announcement. When the facility is complete, the dozen sports legends will have life-size bronze statues on display on the Old National Bank Sports Legends Avenue of Champions.

Construction on the 7.5-acre Sports Legends Experience began in September. It will feature exhibits related to the  Pacers, Colts, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and, recently-announced, the NCAA. 

We will have more on the sports legends after they are announced. An official from The Children's Museum will also appear on Inside INdiana Business Television this weekend to discuss the announcement.
