We inspire nearly 90,000 children of all ages in Mesa and the Phoenix metropolitan area through art exhibitions and STEAM activities focused on supporting early learning, nurturing creative thinking and engaging families.


By supporting the museum, you are providing opportunities for children of all ages to embark on new experiences aimed at helping them see their world differently. Exhibitions and activities incorporate science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). These educational principles are embraced by institutions and corporations to help prepare our youth for jobs of the future, where critical thinking and problem-solving skills will be essential for success.
