We do it all for you – our members, donors, sponsors, volunteers and museum visitors.

All the exhibitions, programs and special events developed by our staff at the i.d.e.a. Museum aim to create experiences that encourage creativity, develop a curiosity for learning and build fun memories.

A key part of our mission is to support early learning, nurture creative thinking and engage families in quality time.



Your support makes it possible for us to continue to offer wonderful educational programs and art exhibitions that make a difference in the lives of so many families in our community. And we’re thankful!

We also appreciate you sharing your lives with us and letting us tell your museum moments on social media.

Our staff wishes you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
