Celebrate your birthday at CMA

The Wonder Room

The Wonder Room is a one-of-a-kind gallery designed to foster imagination, experimentation, and storytelling in visitors of all ages. On January 1, 2014, this family friendly space re-opened as a dark and mysterious woodland environment.

The Wonder Room is a place where visitors can cultivate creativity through play – through making and building, through storytelling and make-believe, through observation and discovery.
