The i.d.e.a. Museum is the place to explore your imagination through design in art, science and technology!

Activities include:

-Developing a stop-motion film in Lights Camera Action
-Acting out stories in ArtVille's Performing Arts Center
-Playing pretend in Art's Vet Clinic, Library, Café and Garden
-Building with soft blocks in ArtVille
-Creating beautiful artworks throughout the museum
-Exploring new fun activities in the Whiteman Family Exhibition Gallery (The Art of Healthy Living ends Jan. 21, 2018; Sonoran Safari exhibit opens Feb. 9 and runs through May 27.).

There are three main exhibit areas (ArtVille - a socks-only space aimed at little ones, the HUB and Whiteman Family Gallery) and an outdoor atrium to explore during your visit. You may enjoy your own lunch in the Atrium or Snackery. Visitor service staff can provide you with a list of local eateries if you wish to eat out.
