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.
