What to wear to Museum by Moonlight

Feel like a kid again, and act like one, too! Where, you ask? At The Children's Museum of Indianapolis!

On today's Indy Style, Danielle Parker, Fashion Mall, and Lindsay Gramlich, Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, share the details of the big event and show us some cute, comfy looks that'll be perfect for your night out of fun AND play! 

Museum by Moonlight
Saturday, February 23, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, 8 p.m.

The Children’s Museum’s Museum by Moonlight affords itself to all kinds of entertainment; it has a cocktail-hour vibe but adults are encouraged, and even look forward to crawling around the dino exhibit and acting like a child again!
