Visiting Indy!

We have a world class Children’s’ Museum.  Wonderful even without children, and sometimes better! http://www.childrensmuseum.org/

Racing fan?  Be sure to visit the Hall of Fame Museum at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. http://www.indianapolismotorspeedway.com/facility/35204-museum/

We have an excellent art museum with spectacular sculpture grounds, the “IMA”  http://www.imamuseum.org/

For a different museum experience be sure to visit our Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art http://www.eiteljorg.org/

For a very different experience, visit the Indiana Medical History Museum, the intact pathology lab from our old Central State Asylum.  Not just a replica, this was the real thing! http://www.imhm.org

Science fiction buff?  Our Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library is downtown.  Easier than going to Tralfamador!  Bring no ice-nine!  http://www.vonnegutlibrary.org/

Tour the Madam Walker Theater Center!  On the register of National Historic Landmarks, the Walker was started by Sarah Breedlove (Madam Walker), the first female self-made millionaire in America.  She was the first child in her family born into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation.  Check out the events!

We have a wonderful zoo too!  Visit our new habitat for Orangutans! Meercats, anyone?  Warthogs?  We’ve got ‘em!   http://www.indianapoliszoo.com

Indianapolis is bike friendly with many miles of bike-marked streets.  Bike rentals downtown are available.  Check out PacersBikeShare, https://www.pacersbikeshare.org/home/

Many restaurants are an easy walk or short cab ride from the hotel. http://www.indydt.com/search.cfm?menu=restaurant
