Every day of the week, Indian Lanes rumbles with activity as bowlers of all ages rack up points on the facility's 16 lanes. A smoke- and alcohol-free alley, Indian Lanes strives to create a suitable environment for every guest, from children and sports teams to church groups and individuals with special needs. In between frames, the action moves away from the pins and toward the snack bar, where popcorn, nachos, and frozen drinks await, or the arcade, which houses video games, pool tables, and air hockey. For bigger groups, the facility features two large party rooms that open for birthday parties, business ventures, and union meetings for striking pins.
As the Jackson Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s reigning Travel Attraction of The Year, as well as the subject of accolades from the Jackson Free Press and Parents & Kids Magazine, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science delights and enlightens attendees of all ages.

Parents may extend their membership to include any number of offspring under the age of 18; grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other guardians may include up to four children; lonely puppet-makers may not include any wooden wards they’ve wished to life.
