Visit the Wonder Studio
This interactive digital experience is great for all ages! Dance on the Colorscape, explore the Artquarium for an up-close look at works from the Chrysler’s collection, or make your own masterpiece on The Studio easels. All works of art in the Wonder Studio are enclosed in glass. That means it’s a worry-free zone for adults. Learn more.
