For Parents bringing children

If you are bringing your child to Indianapolis, please refer to the ASMS Conference Policies found on the annual conference homepage.

All children visiting Indianapolis will be interested in the Children's Museum. This destination museum can easily fill a day (or two) with interactive exhibits and just plain fun.

There are several resources that may be useful to parents in making arrangements for their child while attending the ASMS conference.
