Have you ever wondered what keeps your body upright? Then come see Bones: An Exhibit Inside You™, an exciting exhibit from the Children's Museum of Indianapolis that will soon be on display at the Mayborn Museum Complex. Bones is a fun, comprehensive lesson about one of the most fundamental parts of our bodies. This fascinating exhibit increases our awareness of the aspects of bones while providing valuable information about careers in science. The interactivity and novelty of this exhibit will interest and entertain both adults and children. All text for the exhibit is in both Spanish and English.

The exhibit opens to the public on Sunday, October 28, 2007, but you can be the first to see this exiting exhibit by attending the Mayborn's preview party, "Bonenanza: A Party of Bone-a-fide Fun" on October 27 from 6 to 9 pm!

We have an entire evening of special activities planned for this casual Halloween-themed party:

Magician Blake Herridge is sure to amaze with his mastery of close-up magic techniques and sleight of hand. Blake is a member of the Texas Association of Magicians and the International Brotherhood of Magicians. He has also been a weekly featured event at Poppa Rollos Pizza and has performed at the restaurant 1424.

Show off your Halloween spirit by joining the Costume Parade! Participants will be introduced before they parade through the rotunda to the sounds of Halloween music. All will receive a glow-in-the-dark bracelet! Each participant will receive a glow-in-the-dark bracelet!

Test your detective skills with a Scavenger Hunt for bones! Follow your detective sheet to find all the bones in the museum. Participants will receive a glow-in-the-dark stretchy skeleton from the museum store for completing the scavenger hunt!

Join talented storyteller Vivian Rutherford in the Texas Forest room for tales of Halloween and bones!

Take your own pictures at our Photo Station so you can remember this fun-filled evening! Be sure to bring your own camera.

We will serve easy-to-eat Halloween-themed finger foods in the mezzanine.
