Indianapolis Children's Museum Tiptoes Into Religion

There's a replica of the Shroud of Turin, a stone from the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a statue of Ganesh and much more. While many museums avoid any modern religious topics, the Indianapolis Children's Museum is taking another tack by incorporating artifacts from the five major religions, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hindu, and Buddhism. This may frustrate the followers of the sixth, seventh and eighth major religions, but it has the major bases covered.

“I’ve learned about stuff that I never learned in school when I was growing up,” said Lisa Yankey, a member of the museum from Noblesville told Cara Anthony at the Indianapolis Star. “It’s really great.”

The exhibit was co-sponsored by the National Geographic Society and runs through February 21st.
