After starting with a budget of $100,000 and only three members in 1972, this museum has blossomed into a company of more than 7,500 square feet of interactive gallery space. In the El Pomar Magic Carpet Theater, you can be the star of your own production or watch film on the high-tech equipment located in the room. The Buell Baby Barn provides several kid-friendly activities to children under the age of four.
