“This tree serves as a living reminder of hope and peace.”

~ Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is the largest children’s museum in the world. Among its most compelling exhibits is The Power of Children: Making a Difference. This permanent exhibit shares the extraordinary stories of three children who symbolize the struggle against injustice: Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White.

The exhibit, which was developed in collaboration with the Anne Frank House and The Anne Frank Center USA, includes a replica of Anne’s Secret Annex, live theatrical performances, as well as sound and light shows. The exhibit is joined by the Power of Children Awards—an annual event honoring children in grades 6-11 who exemplify the extraordinary commitment to tolerance, public service and social responsibility championed by Anne, Ruby and Ryan. The planting of Anne’s tree will further Anne’s legacy, and offer a reminder that children can be a powerful force for tolerance and justice.
