Event Description:

Anne Frank faced the horrors of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany during World War II. Ryan White faced discrimination against individuals with HIV/AIDS in his Hoosier hometown in the 1980s. Ruby Bridges suffered racial discrimination in a New Orleans grade school in 1960. All of them faced extreme prejudice. A new, permanent exhibit explores intolerance and fear, and challenges viewers to make positive changes in the world. On opening day, The Youth Philanthropy Initiative, a program of the Indiana Grantmakers Alliance, will host a philanthropy fair to encourage young people to get involved and give back to their communities. Museum admission is $12.50 adults and $7.50 youth. Classroom resources are available. Presented by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Indiana Grantmakers Alliance.
