Details

+ -

The Chandler Museum campus features both locally produced and nationally traveling exhibits exploring culture, history, and art; the East Valley History Center for researchers; educational programming in the new classroom; and more. Reopened in December 2018, the new museum boosts a new 10,000 square foot facility adjacent to the historic McCullough-Price House. The modern building is the centerpiece of the new museum campus and it was designed to complement the historic house, preserving and honoring the past while representing our progress as a community with a bright future. Visitors to the Chandler Museum also can see Infinite Shade. This sculpture, by artist Jeff Zischke, functions as a shade structure for the museum’s outdoor courtyard during the day and at night it is bathed in multicolored light. Chandler Museum is an interdisciplinary learning environment where the community comes together to share its stories, preserve its cultural heritage and experience Chandler as a people and place. The vision of the Museum is to be the community’s principal resource to explore its people’s history, culture, and their place in the rapidly changing world of today. The Chandler Museum is a division of the Community Services Department in the City of Chandler. The museum can be found throughout the community, but its main three sites include the new museum, Tumbleweed Ranch, and ChandlerpediA, an online resource. The regular hours of operation for the Chandler Museum are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Admission is free. 300 S. Chandler Village Drive Chandler, Arizona.
