The Children\u2019s Museum of Indianapolis remains committed to ensuring that all families have the opportunity to visit and enjoy its world-class exhibits, regardless of income. That is why it is implementing a new pricing structure that\u00a0offers more affordable options and a wider range of lower-priced days. Plan-Ahead Pricing at the Children\u2019s Museum means that families who buy their tickets in advancecan save as much as 65% on their visit to the museum. Here\u2019s how Plan-Ahead Pricing works: A \u201cHow To\u201d video on the museum\u2019s website shows you how to purchase your tickets online.\u00a0 Or, follow these instructions: \tVisit the\u00a0pricing calendar\u00a0found on our Buy Tickets page \tUse the color coding to determine prices \tSelect a date that works for your budget and your schedule \tEnter ticket quantities \tClick\u00a0\u201cBuy Tickets\u201d and check out\u00a0 It is important to note that prices are subject to change until the ticket is purchased. You always save by buying ahead of a visit to the museum. This new pricing structure goes a step further than other pricing structures in that the museum has taken specific measures to ensure that there are more lower-priced options. \tPrices will range from $12-$35. \tThe average day-of projected price is $21.75 (that\u2019s $1.75 less than the current adult price of $23.50). \tThere will be at least 42 days in 2017 when day-of prices will be $16 or less (that includes 8 Sundays). \tVisitors may buy tickets ahead of time starting\u00a0February 1, 2017. But, the new pricing options will not go into effect until\u00a0March 13, 2017\u00a0(this spring break).\u00a0 In addition to The Children\u2019s Museum\u2019s new pricing structure, the museum continues its commitment to assist underserved children and families by offering four free days a year (those days are Presidents Day, Martin Luther King Day,\u00a0El D\u00eda de los Ni\u00f1os, and Christmas Eve).\u00a0 Or, visitors can choose to visit on the first\u00a0Thursday\u00a0night of each month and take advantage of\u00a0$5 First\u00a0Thursday\u00a0Nights (4-8 p.m.) - all tickets are $5 each on those nights\u00a0and are not affected by Plan-Ahead Pricing. It is highly recommended that families buy these tickets online in advance to avoid lines at the Box Office. In addition, the museum\u2019s\u00a0Access Pass\u00a0program provides tickets that are $2 per person per visit for Hoosier families who qualify. Visit the museum\u2019s website for details. Always remember that a general admission ticket\u2014regardless of the price paid\u2014 will include\u00a0free\u00a0parking and access to\u00a0all\u00a0of the museum\u2019s exhibits, exhibit programs and special performances including the Lilly Theater and Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater.\u00a0There are two exceptions: the Museum Guild\u2019s annual Haunted House in October requires a separate ticket, and the Carousel requires a $1 token.\u00a0Membership remains the museum\u2019s greatest value allowing visitors to pay once and visit unlimited times throughout the year.
