MESA, Ariz. (Dec. 1, 2018) Is there an art or science lover in your life? Give your special someone, and their family, the gift of an annual i.d.e.a. Museum membership — an
experience that can be enjoyed all year long! Save $10, $20 or $30 on select annual memberships starting now through Dec. 23.
The most popular option – the primary membership, on sale for $75 – includes free admission for four (4) members of your family for one year, plus benefits such as $25 off
birthday party packages, 10 percent off regular prices in the museum shop and varying discounts on workshops/classes. It also includes special members-only events and
The primary membership pays for itself in less than three family visits. A portion of the membership cost supports educational program development.
“When you give an i.d.e.a. Museum membership as a gift, you are giving more than just a holiday present, you’re encouraging a lifelong love of learning, an appreciation of the arts,
and an opportunity to explore together as a family,” said museum Visitor Services Director Jessica Kuenne. “Through a rotation of interactive exhibitions and hands-on play, children
and their families have a chance to connect, explore innovative thoughts, and inspire critical and creative thinking skills.”
The i.d.e.a. Museum – where children of all ages experience hands-on activities and art to engage their brains – features three rotating exhibitions annually (currently featuring
Far Out: Our Solar System) and ongoing activities in the HUB Gallery and ArtVille.
The HUB attracts all ages and is filled with activities that support creativity, promote problem solving and highlight design and engineering principles. ArtVille (aimed at
children 4 and younger) is a socks-only space that provides a variety of stimulating activities. These include playing with pixels and gears; using imagination in Art’s
library, cafe and vet clinic; and building with soft blocks in the main space.
The museum is open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Saturday,
9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Friday, and 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. Sunday. Closed Mondays and most
government holidays. Learn more: www.ideaMuseum.org.
