Professor Phineas T. Pennypickle, Ph.D
Ahhh, the Professor. He is an enigma. Mysterious, elusive, slightly absent-minded, this genius has traveled the world...and traveled through time to conspire, invent and explore with brilliant minds from history, like Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Lindberg, and other familiar intellects.
Phineas' tiny field-mouse-friend Beaker cuddles in the Professor's lab coat pocket to observe the puttering and tinkering, and when the Professor is not around, Beaker keeps an eye on the workshop.
The Imagination Workshop - the Temecula Children's Museum
The Professor's home...7500 square feet of it, cluttered with hands-on inventions, gadgets, experiments...and kids won't even know they're learning as they play! Located in the heart of Old Town Temecula, Southern California (a great place to visit, by the way), the recently opened Imagination Workshop has already won a THEA award from the Themed Entertainment Association, representing creators of compelling places and experiences, and two awards from the California Park and Recreation Society.
