Castle Builder

Castle Builder Exhibition
Programs available from May 12 – October 21, 2018

Summoning all castle builders! To coincide with our 2018 travelling exhibition, Castle Builder, the Children’s Museum presents a series of curriculum-linked school programs individually tailored for grade levels N-5. Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build, and play in the travelling exhibition — Castle Builder!

In this exhibition, students are transported to a kingdom where they become castle builders, building their own toy castle brick by brick. In Castle Builder, builders of all ages and skill levels can construct castles, learn about real-world castles and their building secrets, and plan their ideal castle’s defenses. Students can even explore the inside of the royal castle, test their fortress designs with a catapult, and spot a dragon.

Castle Builder was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
