Description

Phoenix New Times' Description

When it was founded in 1980 the Arizona Museum for Youth was the only childrens museum in the United States dedicated specifically to fine art. The museum was the dream of philanthropists Jack and John Whiteman and has become a place for Valley residents to introduce children to the world of art and discover self-expression. Exhibits at the museum include both traditional art displays and participatory components that allow children to explore the fine arts as well as their own creativity. The museum is housed inside what used to be a grocery store and one exhibit, Artville, is a mini-sized art-focused town for kids. The museum gift shop is also a great place to find affordable gifts for kids including a variety of books, educational toys and more.

Merchant's Description

The Arizona Museum for Youth [AMY] provides art education through creative play and seeks to instill a passion for lifelong learning in art and art appreciation through self-expression, hands-on learning, and participant-centered programs.

    Did you know? Arizona Museum for Youth was founded in 1980 as the only children's museum in the United States with a focus on fine art.

    Admission is half price right now due to renovations!

  • Kristy M. on 11/24/12

    Get the reciprocal membership. It can be used all year at AMY and dozens of other Children's Museums around North America.

    Fun time but expensive for a one year old.
