To create innovative learning experiences that equip and inspire the next generation of creative problem solvers.
A creative community with a passion for lifelong learning and discovery.
We’re a STEAM engine to power kids’ imagination, creativity, and love of learning.
Thinkery is where Austin’s children and their families come to enjoy play-based, inquiry-rich, hands-on learning experiences. In 1983, a group of Austin parents and educators created a space to provide innovative new educational and cultural opportunities to local children.
Over the next three decades and rooted deeply in its commitment to supporting a thriving Austin community, the Austin Children’s Museum would grow and evolve into Thinkery, which today offers 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor activities for children and families to learn through play.
