What is there to do?

Mesa's Idea Museum has been designed JUST with kids in mind, with activities and exhibitions that focus on three key pillars - supporting early learning, engaging families, as well as nurturing creative thinking.

Sounds like a pretty cool place to us!

Let's start with Artville, an engaging place space designed for those playful little ones up to 4 years of age. Here, young crawlers and those curious toddlers can interact in a town built to cultivate imagination and creative expression.

This socks-only space is perfect for those little ones to learn in their own time, away from the bigger kids, with age-appropriate activities geared towards their development!

Then you have HUB, a gallery with a number of interactive areas to trigger those imaginations and let creativity run loose! Kids can create artwork, design and build, and explore a very cool collection on interactives that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Future engineers can start constructing their masterpiece, and create their own entire world! A great exhibit to learn about recycling too!

Kids can create digital art, as well as play with stop-motion and make stories come to life! They can even play with sound and create their own musical composition!

Idea Museum also has changing exhibitions, each of which teach children something different. It might be they learn about conservation, or the importance of recycling. They might surround themselves with STEM related activities, or see artwork from all around the country.

A day of learning, experimenting, discovery and most important, FUN, and it's all at the Idea Museum in Mesa, so kids - let's get PLAYING!
