Take Me There: Greece and Treasures of Ancient Greece

The “land of the gods” travels 5,300 miles to the world’s largest children’s museum for Treasures of Ancient Greece and Take Me There:® Greece.

Treasures of Ancient Greece presented by OneAmerica and supported by Ice Miller LLP

Every one of the 6,000 Greek islands has secrets, mysteries and treasures from the past. Visitors to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will discover some of the most compelling stories at a temporary new exhibit featuring rare Greek antiquities, some of which are being exhibited for the first time in the US. Families will learn about ancient ruins, temples and open air theaters along with philosophers and mythological gods.

Visitors to Treasures of Ancient Greece at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will discover how the ideas of the ancient Greeks form the basis of much of Western civilization as we know it today through artifacts that depict ingenious science and technology, politics and medicine.

Take Me There®: Greece Presented by Ice Miller LLP

Take Me There: ® Greece serves as a classic travel adventure allowing families to explore modern-day Greece without ever leaving the United States. It is one of the largest exhibitions on contemporary Greece ever mounted in the United States.

Visitors “fly over” magnificent mountains and swirling seas before “touching down” in Athens, where the ancient Parthenon overlooks a bustling modern city. Families have the opportunity to explore homes and learn about real families who live in Greece.

Children will be invited to make traditional Greek foods and serve their grownups faux Greek delicacies in the recreated Taverna and bakery, and stroll through plateia (plaza) with its traditional events. Families will enjoy exploring traditional dance and music together and shopping in the market with its fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish.
