Brimming behind a curved glass exterior, painstakingly crafted bisque pieces perch on sleek black squares while original drawings and paintings cascade across the light-strewn walls of The Chartreuse Muse. Inside, local artists showcase their pièces de résistance and helm classes in the dynamic space's art school. Sessions for all ages and levels tackle a bevy of media, such as clay, charcoal, and acrylic paints, and inspire students to draw, paint, or create mixed-media collages of their tax-return documents.

The Haggin Museum’s redbrick pediment has cast its shadow on the grassy expanses of Victory Park since 1931. Though not much has changed in its outward appearance, the museum’s collection of fine artworks and historical artifacts has continued to evolve. Recent decades have brought new landscapes, portraits, and commercial artworks to the art wing, where one can view American painter Albert Bierstadt's stunning Yosemite landscapes alongside the iconic images of J. C. Leyendecker, Norman Rockwell’s predecessor at the Saturday Evening Post. The history galleries cast a spotlight on how Stockton has shifted and grown over the past 150 years. The finely curated exhibits craft a seamless narrative that begins with the pre-pioneer lifestyle of an average Native American family.

Lego cars zip down ramps, giant bubbles bobble in the air, and lightning strikes inside a glass orb. At World of Wonders, these are just a few of the more than 50 hands-on experiments designed to excite the imagination and nurture a love of science.

The World of Wonders opened in March of 2009. There, kids and adults learn how light, sound, motion, and sight work at manipulative exhibits such as the shake table, which shows how buildings can withstand earthquakes. By placing one hand on a copper plate and the other on an aluminum plate, visitors learn how their bodies are conduits for electrons while observing their electric current on a meter. It's permanent features like these, as well as rotating events, that inspire the minds of future engineers, astronauts, and mad scientists whose Frankenstein-like creations are actually just misunderstood by society.
