There is a Polish saying that encourages us to keep our minds on our own affairs and not worry about the things that are not our business: \u201cNot my circus, not my monkeys.\u201d\u00a0 But as parents of young children we all know that it often IS your circus and even if you try to pretend they aren\u2019t your monkeys they all have your eyes and call you \u201cdaddy\u201d so the effort is futile.\u00a0 What to do when the monkeys have taken over and the ring master needs something new to keep them occupied? Step right up, ladies and gentleman, the Children\u2019s Museum of Indianapolis presents The Circus, Starring You! The Children\u2019s Museum, of course, never disappoints.\u00a0 This newest exhibit gives kids the opportunity to be a part of the circus. This is a particular draw for me because I, myself, have never been to the circus.\u00a0 I suspect my fantasies of this nostalgic \u201cgreatest show on Earth\u201d are likely not based on the reality of the circus so much as the cleaned up depictions from cartoons.\u00a0 However, the Children\u2019s museum shares my vision and has given us everything that is great about the circus with none of the off-putting parts.\u00a0 This is great because my wife and I spent hours wondering what kids would threaten their parents with now that Barnum and Baileys has closed.\u00a0 \u201cThat\u2019s it mom, I'm running away to join the Harlem Globe Trotters!\u201d\u00a0 Good luck son, do you even dunk, bro?\u00a0 But here at TCM Indy kid\u2019s imaginations can run away as they are fired from a cannon, balance on a rolla bola, walk a tight rope and perform on Lyra rings.\u00a0 Creators of this exhibit have really gotten into the mind of a child and given them the opportunity to perform death defying feats without any risk to their actual life and limb.\u00a0 The tight rope, for example, is done using virtual reality equipment, giving kids the illusion of being 10 stories high without ever being out of arms reach.\u00a0 The cannon firing is really just a fancy optical illusion that makes for great photos and speaking of photos don\u2019t forget to stop by the clown photo booth to email your family a picture of you in full clown makeup.\u00a0 Pro-tip, shave first or you\u2019ll look like an out of work, clown who tells inappropriate jokes at kids\u2019 parties, like I did.\u00a0 The Circus- Starring You! (website)\u00a0runs now through March 25, 2018 and is sure to please all the kids and kids at heart in your family. So get in your clown cars and head on down!
