INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Children's Museum of Indianapolis has won a prestigious national honor for helping to change the life of disabled child.

Museum officials, 8-year-old Spencer Hahn and his mother accepted the 2014 National Medal for Museum and Library Service from first lady Michelle Obama during a White House ceremony Thursday. The Indianapolis museum was one of 10 institutions receiving the honor for community service.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services says Spencer Hahn's doctors believed he would never be able to walk or talk after he suffered a stroke before he was born. The institute says Spencer began walking and talking during visits to the Children's Museum.

Other institutions honored for innovative service this year include a natural history museum, an aquarium, and public library systems from 10 states.
