IBJ Podcast: Children’s Museum CEO talks dinos, COVID and the price of admission

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has just reopened its Dinosphere exhibit after a year of renovations that added two huge long-necked sauropods and a new prehistoric marine area—all based on bones found in a museum-owned dig site.

CEO Jennifer Pace Robinson, who took on the museum’s top job about a year ago, talks with Mason King about the importance of the exhibit, the logistics of hanging all those bones, and what makes the experience different than visitors might find at other museums.

Plus, King quizzes Robinson about what’s ahead for the museum, what it plans to do with the historic Drake building that it owns and why it costs so much to buy a family membership.
