A Kid's Columbus

A person who designs buildings is a special kind of artist called an architect. To become an architect, one must study math, science, art and design for many years at a college or university. A great number of our visitors are students who are learning to be architects. They come to Columbus, Indiana because our town has the greatest concentration of modern architecture of any city in the world!

Columbus has some places of particular interest to children, too. They include a not-so-secret garden with lots of animals carved from stone, a childrenís museum where kids recycle to make art (YES!), and an old-fashioned ice cream parlor that looks just as it did when your great-grandparents were young.

And there are sculptures and other cool things that make Columbus special for kids. Large Arch by Henry Moore is a giant, abstract sculpture that stands in front of our public library, and Chaos created by Jean Tinguely is a jumble of whirring metal that is the centerpiece of The Commons, a downtown civic area.

Visiting the public library or attending church or school in a building designed by a famous architect is an everyday occurrence in Columbus. This is a beautiful city, and itís a fun place to be a kid. Letís start discovering A Kidís Columbus with that not-so-secret garden! Come with us as we take you on a virtual tour.
