"Creative, interactive play is key to

neurological growth and development."


The i.d.e.a. Museum is an essential provider of art education fundamentals, as well as, a center for creative play which is key to neurological growth and development. We seek to instill a passion for lifelong learning in art and art appreciation for all of our visitors including caregivers, children, adults and teens. Here, everyone can learn about the techniques, processes and materials used to create art while discovering more about themselves and their world through self-expression, hands-on learning and participant-centered programs.



We do this through 4 initiatives:

* Ensuring Accessibility

* Supporting the Arts in K-12 and Higher


* Partnering with Community Organizations

* Enhancing Lifelong Learning


Through our dynamic array of programs, exhibitions, and workshops, we invite you to join us for an artful experience at i.d.e.a. Museum!
