The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is celebrating a record-breaking month. The museum says June 2018 saw the highest attendance of any June in its 93-year history with nearly 113,000 visitors.
The museum says last month’s number is an increase of nearly 10,000 visitors from the previous record, set in June 2012. The museum credits the recently-opened Sports Legends Experience, as well as three new indoor sports exhibits and the DC Super Heroes exhibit as reasons for the boost in attendance.
"It is thrilling for us to see so many children and families engaging together in our new 7.5 acre Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience, donning their superhero capes to solve capers, and enjoying our five full floors of interactive, entertaining and educational exhibits," said Jeffrey Patchen, chief executive officer of The Children’s Museum. "We value every new guest and every returning member, and strive to provide extraordinary opportunities to create family memories."
TCM says it also saw a record 67,000 museum members attended last month, up from the previous June record in 2015, which saw 49,000 visits.
