The i.d.e.a. Museum will be open for exploration free to the public from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2, for Museum Discovery Day. The day aims to make art and hands-on activities accessible to families of all economic backgrounds. Additionally, a reduced admission is available for families in need via Museums for All.
Free days are very popular and attract crowds. To better serve visitors, avoid long lines and allow as many people as possible to enjoy the attractions, the museum will have timed ticket entries. Tickets will be distributed at the door on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 9:55 a.m. No advanced tickets are available.

Once received, your ticket will guarantee access for that time period only, allowing you to go someplace cool and return 15 minutes prior to your entry time.
Visitors are urged to avoid a lengthy wait in the heat. There will be a tent with misters nearby on Pepper Street, water stations and food trucks, and some fun City vehicles to explore. An air-conditioned indoor waiting area is available for the period just prior to your ticketed entry time. Information on entry locations and process will be shared when you receive your timed ticket.
At the i.d.e.a. Museum, enjoy visiting the Artful Play! Games & Toys exhibition during Museum Discovery Day. Please note: Admission to ArtVille – our imaginative socks-only space for children ages 0-4 – will be limited to 30 minutes per visitor to ensure many new visitors may experience the space. Additionally, staff may pause entry based on inside crowds.
Please be aware that we will be taking museum activity photos for social media on Sept. 2. For close-up pics, let us know if you are camera shy.
The museum also offers discounted admission for economically challenged families through the Museums for All program, so our community may experience the museum without the crowds typical on free days. Families who present their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card qualify for a $2 admission per person (up to 6 people) and may visit the i.d.e.a. Museum during times convenient for their families.
