Save America's Treasures

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis will use funds towards the development of a master plan to guide infrastructure improvements for the storage of the museum's Arts & and Humanities Collection as well as a logistics plan for rehousing objects and the long-term growth of the collection. Founded in 1925, the museum is unique amongst its peers in that it is a collecting institution featuring objects that illustrate the history of American childhood. This project will focus on the Arts & Humanities Collection, with 120,000 artifacts that includes many objects of national significance. In addition, one of the museum's strengths is its ability to tell the evolving story of the American family through objects made for and by children. The project will be matched with $124,642 in non-federal share.
