At more than 470,000 square feet and featuring 11 permanent exhibits dedicated to the arts, sciences and humanities, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is the largest children's museum in the world. In 2004, the museum opened Dinosphere®: Now You're In Their World, an immersive exhibit featuring the largest collection of dinosaur fossils in a children's museum in the Unites States. This unprecedented exhibit was the first in a series of innovative new permanent exhibits developed by the museum, including Fireworks of Glass in 2006, The Power of Children: Making a Difference in 2007, and Take Me There: Egypt in 2009. In 2009, The Children's Museum also played host to the traveling exhibit Tutankhamum: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs, the only children's museum to host this one-of-a-kind exhibit.
