Opening Indianapolis: Attractions Announcing Plans to Re-Open

The light at the end of the shutdown tunnel seems to be in view.

We’ve lost count of how many days Indianapolis has been more or less closed. But as Governor Holcomb begins to ease stay-at-home restrictions through the Back on Track plan, many local attractions are starting to announce their plans to re-open.

Please note that even though places are opening back up, certain restrictions will most likely still be in place, so be sure to look into the details before planning your visit!

We will continue to update this information as more details become available.
