IFMA Indianapolis – Indianapolis Children’s Museum Tour

From its on-site paleontology fossil prep lab to the priceless glass sculpture with its own cleaning crew, you won't want to miss this very special, behind-the-scenes tour. IFMA Indianapolis will be hosted by the museum's Vice President of Operations along with its AVP Facility Operations and Production, who will show some of the unusual features of this 490,000-square-foot building and 7.5-acre sports experience as part of the museum complex – and discuss the challenges of running a facility with over 1.2 million visitors a year. The group will learn more about the museum's use of CMMS data, its facility assessment process, an upcoming security-technology review and plan, and how they employ a work-study student to help with asset management tracking.
