There are a number of reasons that the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is ranked among the best in the world, but we’d have to say that it’s due to the first-class attractions.  And we’re excited about the latest attraction coming our way – National Geographic Treasures of the Earth Opening Gala!

Be transported to three world-renowned archaeological sites—the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Seti I, the burial site of China’s Terra Cotta Warriors and the Caribbean shipwreck of accused pirate Captain Kidd. You and a guest can still be a kid at heart at this adults only preview event – Treasures of the Earth Opening Gala on June, 4, 2011.

Beginning at 7 p.m., guests can enjoy themed dinner stations presented at each of the exhibit’s archaeological areas inspired by the Dominican Republic, Egypt and China. And from 9:30 p.m. to midnight, comes the after-party with live entertainment by Caribbean Consort, Jia Chinese Music and The Wendy Reed Band.
