WHAT: The Scott Family Amazeum will hold its grand opening celebration Wednesday, July 15, as it opens its doors to the public for the first time. Everyone is encouraged to join in the festivities surrounding this hands-on, interactive museum for children and families in Northwest Arkansas. Experiences at the nearly 50,000-square-foot space will include the 3M tinkering hub, climbable tree canopy, indoor cave, an art studio and more. Exhibitions will extend to the museum grounds where approximately one acre of land will provide the background for more learning and fun.

WHO: Sam Dean, executive director of Scott Family Amazeum, will lead the celebration. Other guests include:
Dora the Explorer
Sponge Bob Squarepants
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

WHY: From their earliest days, people inquire, explore and soak up ideas, and they thrive in environments rich with stimulation. From childhood, they gather information that will guide them throughout their lives; they never stop asking questions, and they depend on everyone around – parents, friends and community – to join them in this amazing adventure. The Scott Family Amazeum, a hands-on museum for children and families, is the dream of a community – to educate people in the best ways possible for whatever lies ahead and to engage the entire family in exploration, learning and fun. The exposure the Amazeum provides to science, technology, engineering, art and creativity – in the form of fun experiences – will give children skills to draw on their entire lives.

Photo-opps abound for this highly visual event!
