The fun, inspiring, and educational hands-on art museum for children and families traveling to Mesa, Arizona. Their museum includes popular art and art-inspired activities, while adding science, engineering and design-thinking in the multi-sensory experiences provided with an increased use of technology to support these offerings and even more opportunities for families to create together.
We are creating a sensory guide and signage for our neuro-diverse guests, as well as making available sensory backpacks for check out. And we have developed some materials to help all families navigate the museum - "Preparing for Your Museum Adventure."
Also, please check in with our front desk for available accommodations to address your family’s needs.
See website for Special Exhibit and Event updates.
“Our goal is to inspire children of all ages to experience their world differently through art, creativity and imagination, so we are thrilled to be a part of this citywide initiative in support of families with children on the autism spectrum,” said Sunnee D. O’Rork, executive director of the i.d.e.a. Museum.
“We have always welcomed families of all abilities to the museum and make accommodations available, but with the added training, we are better equipped to address these special needs. We know the training we’ve done is essential for taking our service to the next level to help all families feel comfortable coming to the museum. We want every visitor to enjoy art and hands-on activities that support a love for learning and creative thinking, while building fun memories together."
