Planning for a permanent exhibition, related changing exhibition space, programming, and educational resources about the ways that American popular culture has influenced and has been influenced by the public.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis proposes to plan a new family learning initiative focusing on American popular culture—the Galleries for American Arts and Popular Culture. The goal of the Galleries will be to help intergenerational families understand the role of popular culture in their own lives by examining questions about its origins, reasons for popularity, and effects on society’s values and behaviors. In consultation with humanities scholars, the Museum will refine humanities themes for a permanent introductory exhibit space on popular culture, as well as a changing exhibit space for a more in-depth exploration. Content and artifact selection will be developed and tested to prompt families to examine and discuss popular culture together.

Implementation of a fourth story, Malala’s World, within the existing permanent exhibition The Power of Children: Making a Difference

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis (Museum) proposes the addition of “Malala’s World” to expand the permanent exhibit entitled The Power of Children: Making A Difference. Through this project, the Museum will build upon its groundbreaking and successful permanent exhibit by adding the inspirational story of Malala Yousafzai, a young girl from Pakistan who advocated for and continues to support education and equality under the threat of the Taliban. In 2014, Malala was awarded the Nobel Prize for her advocacy efforts. Since opening in 2007, over 3.5 million children and their families and 250,000 students have visited The Power of Children: Making A Difference exhibit.

Implementation of a traveling exhibition on Emmett Till, whose lynching at the age of 14 in 1955 was a major turning point in the civil rights movement.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis (Museum), together with the Emmett Till Interpretive Center (ETIC), requests a grant of $400,000 from the NEH to create the traveling exhibition, "Emmett Till’s Journey Home: A Story of Racism that Shocked a Nation" (tentative title) in partnership with the Till family and notable Till scholars. Featuring a vandalized Emmett Till historical marker that represents the ongoing challenges of racism in the United States, the traveling exhibition will tell the story of 14-year-old Emmett Till and his racially motivated 1955 murder, which sparked the civil rights movement and inspired a generation of young activists. By focusing on the story of one child, Emmett, the exhibition will make the difficult topic of the nation’s long history of racism accessible for family audiences, fostering dialogue and, as a result, inspiring families to take action to address modern-day racism in their own communities.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis (TCM) is requesting $350,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop a permanent exhibit entitled "The Power of Children: Making a Difference." The exhibit will feature three immersive settings depicting historical events and people from the 20th century.

Scheduled to open in October 2007, the total budget for "The Power of Children" is $6 million: $3 million for capital costs and $3 million for endowment.
