About Rhythm! Tours

What You’ll Do: Your group will experience the world of percussion by playing the interactive instruments located within our our six exhibit galleries.

Tour Availability: 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM start time, Monday or Wednesday – Friday. Monday & Friday tours have a max capacity of 20 students, and Wednesday & Thursday tours have a max capacity of 40 students. We recommend allowing 45-60 minutes per tour. 

COVID Precautions: Unvaccinated visitors ages 2 and up are required to wear masks while inside the museum. Vaccinated visitors can choose to not wear a mask. However, because children under the age of 12 can’t be vaccinated, we encourage everyone to wear a mask as a positive role model. Our staff will continue to be masked, serving as additional positive role models.

Pricing: $6 per student, with a 5:1 free chaperone ratio. Coupons may not be applied to a group tour rate. If you are a teacher at IPS, or a public school in the Metropolitan Indianapolis area, email our Museum Manager about our field trip and transportation grants. 

Chaperones: Rhythm! requires that the school provide one chaperone for every 10 students. With every five purchased student tickets, a tour receives a free chaperone ticket. But, if more chaperones attend than the 5:1 ratio, they are admitted at a $6-per-chaperone rate.

Accessibility: Rhythm! meets all Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for accessibility. Please notify the Museum Manager prior to your tour for any special-needs requests.

Lunch: Rhythm! Discovery Center has no lunchroom. If students are bringing lunch/drinks, they must be left on the bus or in our designated storage area at room temperature. The two closest areas for lunch are the Artsgarden, as well as the Circle Centre Mall Food Court. The closest outside lunch area is the White River State Park. Please plan any lunch time activities outside of Rhythm Discovery Center in advance of your trip. 

Parking: Unfortunately, Rhythm! Discovery Center is not able to provide parking for groups. You must plan ahead and find bus parking before your group arrives downtown. Bus parking is available at the White River Surface Parking Lot. To reserve a space, call 317-233-2434. If you are driving personal vehicles we recommend parking in the Circle Centre Mall Parking
