Think you won’t enjoy a children’s museum just because of the title? The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest in the world, offers exhibits that appeal to all ages, including the limited-time Star Trek exhibit.


Through April 7, sci-fi fans can check out the “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds” exhibition. It includes more than 100 artifacts from the television series and the films, including the ship’s navigation console, costumes and more.


Star Trek has entertained, educated and inspired generations of fans which makes an exhibit exploring Star Trek’s role in advancing science and technology a perfect fit for The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum. “Together, families will undoubtedly reminisce about the past, enjoying the iconic characters and artifacts they’ve loved, while discussing the impact Star Trek has had influencing the future by promoting equality and advancing science and popular culture.”


If you can’t make it to the museum before April 7, you’ll still definitely enjoy the “American POP” exhibit. The year-round gallery celebrates all things pop culture, with a focus on music, television, comics, toys, fashion and more. Check out one of the world’s largest Batman memorabilia collections, some of your favorite classic toys and recognizable items from celeb collections.


Sports fans should check out Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience. There are tons of activities including, yes, even sports gear for adults, so you don’t have to stand on the sidelines, and displays on sports-related art, basketball history and more.

Medical Products You Probably Don’t Need to Pack

The internet is teeming with countless listicles that advise you on what to pack for your next vacation, especially when it comes to products to help you stay safe and healthy while miles away from home. But there are some medical products you might not really need, despite the overflow of suggestions.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
