About the Halle Heart Children’s Museum

The Halle Heart Children’s Museum educates, engages and empowers nearly 30,000 children each year through an interactive and state-of-the-art experience focused on heart healthy lifestyle choices, heart function and emergency response.

Opened in 1996 and renovated in 2010, the Halle Heart Children’s Museum is the only tangible, hands-on, interactive cardiovascular learning facility in the nation. The 16,000 sq. ft. museum is housed within the American Heart Association building near I-10 and Broadway in Tempe, Arizona.

The original Halle Heart Center was envisioned in the 1990s by a notable group of community leaders. Bruce Halle, Founder and Chairman of Discount Tire, and his wife Diane, enthusiastically led the charge. The Halle family’s initial gift became the cornerstone of the campaign to bring the museum to fruition.
