If both kids and innovation represent the future of tomorrow, then Thinkery is the laboratory where the future is coming to fruition. The Austin-based gallery and events center brands itself as an evolution of the Austin Children's Museum, focusing on science, art, and innovation by encouraging kids to ask "why" and "how".

At Thinkery, kids and parents alike can attend events that span all sort of topics. The museum and science center is dedicated to teaching STEAM: sciences, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Events can thus include things like robotic circuses, kid-made light shows, music camps, and more. The events are graded by age, and there are appropriate options for infants all the way to middle schoolers.

The center is also home to several permanent galleries and exhibits like the Innovators' Workshop and the Kitchen Lab.
