INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — There's the Washington Monument in our nation's capital, the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris...and the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

All of these attractions made this year's TIME for Kids (TFK) World's Coolest Places list. It's a list of 50 fun places for kids and by kids.

TFK gathered nominations from a network of TFK Kid Reporters and young readers worldwide. The adults worked through the nominations, ranking them based on quality, originality, sustainability and accessibility.

The list is broken down by places to play, places to learn, places to explore and places to eat.

The Children's Museum landed in the places to learn section.

"There are many children's museums, but none are quite as amazing—or as expansive—as the Children's Museum of Indianapolis," the magazine says.

The magazine highlighted the museum's Sports Legends Experience, outer-space artifacts, and exhibits on ancient Greece.

Other Midwest attractions to make the list include City Museum in St. Louis, the Otherworld art installation in Columbus, Ohio, and SafeHouse Milwaukee in Wisconsin.
