Children’s Museum of Indianapolis Is Going Kid-Free for One Night

Way back when I was working for a Fortune 500 company, we hosted an international gathering of medical writers at a conference in Baltimore. Part of the wining and dining we offered them was a a night at the Baltimore Science Center.  We rented out the place and had it all to ourselves. It was a Children’s Museum with no children! Now, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is offering you the same opportunity on Saturday, February 23, 2013.

The event, called Adult Swim, is a fundraiser hosted by the museum and The Sapphire Theatre Company. Organizers say that the world-famous museum will offer all the fun you expect to have at the Children’s Museum with a casual-chic cocktail lounge vibe. In addition to favorites like the carousel, the Dinosphere, Science Central and others, guests will enjoy dancing, drinks and upscale food, and games.

The Power of Children exhibit would probably be my first stop; my kids never want to spend as much time there as I do. Then I would head downstairs to the Fireworks of Glass exhibit where I could build my own Chihuly-inspired structure without some kid trying to undo what I’m doing.

Doesn’t that sound like fun to you? Still need some convincing? Check this out:

Tickets to Adult Swim are $55 plus a processing fee before February 15. After that date, tickets are $65 plus the fee. Click here to purchase tickets.
