Scott Family Amazeum Overview
The Scott Family Amazeum is a hands-on, interactive museum in Northwest Arkansas that creates a fun environment where risk taking, imagining, problem solving, discovery, collaboration, and exploration bring children and adults together to learn and grow. Through experiences with the Amazeum, individuals and the community are engaged in building relationships and developing identities as creative, curious, and innovative shapers for the region. Hands-on learning opportunities and inquiry-based discovery allow guests to exercise critical thinking and take risks in the context of play.

The exhibits and programs are multidisciplinary based on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts to further formal educational goals in a high-quality informal learning environment. The museum is located at the intersection of Museum Way and J Street in Bentonville, AR.
