  • Lots of percussion instruments to see, plus a small area where you can play around in a soundproof "practice" room. The kids will love it - just make sure you are ready to hear a lot of banging and cl...  more »

  • I loved coming to this place, I love it! I have went here about 14 times. I love playing Star wars music on the mallets. 5 star from me
  • This place is amazing to me. the practice rooms are nice and have different reverb settings. the electronic drums are fun. there are many really cool and some very old looking drum kits on display. have to say I am in there every chance I get. I have never encountered any rude employees or customers. Debbie at the front desk always informs me of any activities going on or any days the place may be closed. just a great place. indianapolis has a lot of bad areas and a lot of crime and with that not too many things to keep youth busy or heading in the right direction. seeing places like this is great. I wish we had more things around to spark curiosity and keep people occupied.
  • So much fun for all ages!!! Brought my two year old and my 81 year old grandmother. We LOVED it. Very educational and tons of fun. Very reasonably priced too. We will absolutely be back.
  • One of the best interactive experiences in the Indianapolis area. I have taken my child there for years and it still ranks very high on his "What do we want to do today?" list. It is a lower cost option for downtown fun, with roughly two hours of entertainment to be had. Try to plan a visit around one of their days featuring live entertainment for an even more enjoyable and immersive experience. A great choice to bundle with other downtown activities for a day of exploring Indy.
  • We wanted a place to spend our afternoon in Indianapolis that our 3 year old and 1 year old would enjoy that wouldn't cost a fortune. The Rhythm! Discover Center fit the bill perfectly. Kids under 5 and under are free and while the the Discovery Center isn't that big, there's enough to do that you could easily spend an hour or two there, especially on a day when it's not too crowded. There's lots of different percussion instruments; lots of drums, cymbals, drum kits, a xylophones, and much more. The kids especially enjoyed banging on the pots and pans, as well as the nook filled with smaller instruments. The exhibit on electronic drums was pretty cool too. And let's face it, even as an adult, banging on drums is a lot of fun
