Tempe History Museum

The main exhibition hall, entitled, Tempe: Distinct, Diverse, Dynamic, is the heart of the new Tempe History Museum. Here the story of Tempe is dramatically staged through a variety of media. The exhibition explores the history of Tempe using a thematic approach. Visitors can explore four thematic areas—

  • Building Our Community: How Tempe gor started and grew into a desert city
  • Living Together: The diverse communities that have come together.
  • Surviving in the Desert: How the desert was settled and the challenges we face in sustaining the environment with urban growth.

Other features of the gallery include:

  • An Exploration Station in each of the themed areas that offers more detailed information online.
  • A Learning Lounge where visitors can browse through books or just sit and take a break.
  • A Kids' Place gets children involved with history.
  • Little Devil's Stadium is a protected space for crawlers and toddlers to move about.
