What to do The biggest draw for my family was the Children's Museum, consistently ranked as one of the best in the country by parenting and travel magazines. The fascinating Dinosphere features life-size dinosaur skeleton replicas, a dino dig area and even a working lab where paleontologists are happy to tell kids about the museum's dinosaur, Dracorex Hogwartsia, a name that pays tribute to Harry Potter. Other highlights included a National Geographic Treasures of the Earth archaeology exhibit, the Barbie Fashion Experience and a "trip" through Egypt ($11.50-$16.50, childrensmuseum.org). Here: Every once in a while it rains in the Dinosphere at the Children's Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana.
