MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The I.D.E.A. museum in Mesa is offering a free Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

The event is part of a collaboration between the museum and the Gila River Indian community. 

“We are expecting over 1,000 people to come out to today’s event,” said Yvette Armendariz, public relations coordinator for the museum.

The museum offers hands-on activities for kids from birth to 12 years of age, to include three areas: “Artville”, the “Hub” and an exhibition gallery. 

The exhibition gallery is currently displaying super hero art work, memorabilia and a green screen room where kids can be imaginative and play pretend to be a hero.

Artville has building blocks of all types, a train, Legos and play pretend stations. 

Armendariz says every year the museum offers up to four free events like the one happening today.
