    My children (3 and 6) absolutely love this place... and I do too! They are able to have fun, be creative and learn something new. I'm grateful for the hands-on experiences this museum provides!

    My review of: I.D.E.A. Museum

    I've been going to this museum for 8 years. I've seen the changes and transformations into the great museum that it is now. Some of the art supplies I could have at my house but there are some that I do not. I love relaxing in the extra cool interior of this museum. My children get to socialize as well as create fun masterpieces and I get to chill.

    Out side there is a music garden. The sculptures of xylophones, drums and chimes are actually in tune and are not just noise makers. So walking up to this place...Read More

    Great place if you have a membership. My 6 and 1 year old enjoy the museum well enough. Especially during the summer when it's too hot for a regular park. I prefer this museum over the one in Phoenix since it is less crowded, and closer to my house. I would not drive across town for this museum, but if you live close it is worth the money you save in gas and membership cost.

    My family and I enjoyed our trip (ages 5, 4 & 1), but I feel the museum isn't worth the overpriced admission. The little kid's area is amazing, but the bathrooms are located on the opposite side of the building (not great for potty training) and they don't have any family bathrooms. Stroller parking, but no family/little kid bathrooms.

    Had a blast on Sunday with my kids. This is perfect for younger kids. My toddler thoroughly enjoyed all the fun especially the huge graffiti room and the play kitchen.

My review of: I.D.E.A. Museum

I've been going to this museum for 8 years. I've seen the changes and transformations into the great museum that it is now. Some of the art supplies I could have at my house but there are some that I do not. I love relaxing in the extra cool interior of this museum. My children get to socialize as well as create fun masterpieces and I get to chill.

Out side there is a music garden. The sculptures of xylophones, drums and chimes are actually in tune and are not just noise makers. So walking up to this place is very peaceful and beautiful. I love the wind mobile at the end by the street.

Inside the museum splits into 2 sections. Left is the main museum. With an Art hub, a table filled wit creativity supplies, a still life table, Disco DJ music station, blacklight room, and a Snackery with more giant bean bags & building blocks for kids to relax on while they enjoy snacks from the vending machines. Restrooms and water fountains are just out side the door. And there is the special gallery that changes every few months. There is access to the enclosed courtyard during midday for outdoor activities. It's a great place to let your kids get out the wiggles.

Separate on the Museum's right side is ArtVille, the Toddler 4 and younger themed zone with play stations of theater, puppet show, block building, kitchen, garden, living room and art studio. There is a family bathroom, as well as a boys, & girls restroom and a mother's room with rockers, changing tables with their own sink and clean up counter. Artville is truly set up with the family in mind. Older siblings are allowed as long as they are respectful and careful of the younger kids.
