We create an educational, interactive, and contemporary museum experience for children of all ages to increase awareness and prevent cardiovascular diseases. The Halle Heart Children’s Museum experience empowers children to make lifestyle choices that will create a new generation of healthy kids.
The original Halle Heart Center was envisioned in the 1990’s by a notable group of community leaders, including Diane and Bruce Halle. Founder and Chairman of Discount Tire, Bruce Halle enthusiastically led the charge. As he says, “I have always been concerned about heart disease, as my mother had it.” The Halle family’s initial gift became the cornerstone of the campaign to bring the museum to fruition.
The 16,000 sq. ft. Halle Heart Children’s Museum opened in January 2011. The museum builds on the success of the former Halle Heart Center, which opened in 1996, and educated more than 450,000 students, teachers and parents throughout Arizona.
Now after many years of providing education for students on field trips, we are so pleased to be open to the general public.
