In 1978, the Arizona Museum for Youth received its 501(c)3 status and was incorporated after several years in the preliminary development phase bringing the dream of Valley philanthropists Jack and John Whiteman to life. The museum was founded in 1980 as the only children's museum in the United States with a focus on fine art. Since then, it has been a major destination for families in Metro-Phoenix area, providing the community with interactive fine art exhibits inspired to introduce children to the world of art and discover self-expression. Featuring artwork by local, national and international professionals, the exhibits of the museum bring the very best of the world of art to those under 1 to over 101 years of age.
AMY links each exhibitor with interactive art-making activities. Guided by current research, AMYs education staff has developed the premier experience for the museum patrons. Caregivers and children learn together about the techniques, processes and materials used to create art while exploring themselves and our world through play and self-expression. With each exhibit, areas are dedicated to expression through music, reading, theatre, art making, and of course, art appreciation.
