The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is updating progress of the $35 million Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience. The project broke ground in September and officials expect it to be complete in March. The 7.5-acre project is the largest investment at the attraction in 40 years.
Major milestones to date include pouring the foundations of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pedal Care Racetrack Experience oval, the indoor exhibit space and the holes for the Pete and Alice Dye Golf Experience. The indoor/outdoor experience on the property will also include the permanent home of the National Art Museum of Sport.
The project is touted as a boost for the local community and for the Indianapolis economy. A University of Michigan study suggests it could have a $130 million economic impact over five years.
