We're almost half-way through our 2020 Tempe Time Machine free summer program. This year's activities are presented online every Wednesday in June and July instead of in-person at the museum. Check out the Tempe Time Machine page for fun video game-themed activities!


While the Museum is closed, check out Tempe at Home.


Tempe at Home is a collaboration of virtual classes, online. Click here to access the eMuseum database activities and learning resources that will help the community stay connected while staying home. Click here to see the Tempe at Home video playlist on Tempe 11 YouTube channel.
