Where are we going today?
Science doesn't always have to be grey labs, and math certainly doesn't have to be hours in front of a blackboard trying to work out Pythagoras. Nope! The Arkansas Museum of Discovery is a GREAT way for kids to explore these topics - because it was created FOR kids for that very purpose!
The museum aims to ignite the passion in kids for these often tough subjects, as they will be learning through creative play, using their imagination, experimenting and exploring.
The Arkansas Museum of Discovery has a range of great permanent exhibits where kids can really have some FUN! Amazing You is all about, well...YOU! The body really does amazing things, and in this exhibit kids can learn all about healthy choices and how that creates healthy bodies. They can see how moving your body keeps you healthy, and how much energy you need to do any given activity.
Discovery Hall is a great place for those who love (or want to love) math. This great exhibit ask questions and shapes answers, like what is force and energy, and how many is in a million.
Explore our planet in Earth Journeys, where you can find out what makes Arkansas unique, and even experience a tornado for yourself in Tornado Alley Theater!
With exhibits just for those kids under 6, and exhibits where kids can build fun things, there really are amazing things for kids to experience at the Arkansas Museum of Discovery.
Parents, we know you will be learning new things to!
