Hear ye, hear ye! The Children's Museum is proud to present Castle Builder! This exhibition will transport you to a kingdom where you become a castle builder, building your own toy castle brick by brick. Whatever your age or skill level you can construct castles, learn about real-world castles and their building secrets, and plan your ideal castle's defenses. You can even explore the inside of the royal castle, test your fortress designs with a catapult, and spot a dragon.  

Castle Builder was produced by The Children's Museum of Indianapolis. Local tour sponsored by Johnston Group. Additional local support provided by Global Television, Len Dubois Trucking, Prairie Public, Qualico, Toromont CAT, and 103.1 Virgin Radio.  


Calling all Castle Builders! The Children's Museum kingdom is growing and we need your help to build a BIGGER and better castle. Choose from three Castle Builder-themed birthday parties, and we'll supply the blueprints and bricks - you just need to bring the building crew. After the castle is built, you get to create a majestic crown or a knight's shield and take a royal photograph with our Instax camera.
