Tempe Time Machine returns this summer with more fun for the whole family! 

Tempe Time Machine is a summer enrichment program that offers hands-on crafts, interactive activities, stories, games and feature performances or demonstrations in June and July. Each year's program is inspired by the museum's featured exhibit; the 2019-20 exhibit Walking Mill Avenue, which presents the history of Tempe's most well-known street.

Youth and their families are invited to enjoy this FREE drop-in program that runs 10 a.m.-2 p.m. every Wednesday in June and July (except July 3). Feature performances or demonstrations take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. each program date. Groups of 10 or more are suggested to call 480-350-5100 to schedule a date and time to visit.
