Founded on the principle that curious, creative community learns together, the Scott Family Amazeum ignites the imagination of children and families with interactive Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math activities and experiences that allow for hands-on exploration and discovery.
The Scott Family Amazeum's interactive exhibits, unique "pop-up" activities, and zinglets (ask a play facilitator) are inspired by the landscape, culture, and innovative spirit of the region. Each experience and activity enable discovery and learning through play.
The Amazeum also hosts traveling exhibits from across the country.
Traveling Exhibits - 2018
Hot Wheels™: Race to Win™ | January 27 to April 29
Explore the behind-the-scenes process that race fans, young and old, may never have seen before! This exhibit developed by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis uses Mattel's Hot Wheels™ brand cars and real automotive artifacts to engage families in every aspect of the design, development, and engineering process that goes into creating the fastest, safest and most precisely engineered vehicles in the world.
Tape and Tunnels: Ordinary Materials, Extraordinary Uses | June 2 to October 21
You'll be amazed at what can be done with packing tape! This exhibit stretches the boundaries of one of the most utilitarian materials. Come climb, crawl, scoot, and slide through a collection of interconnected sculptures created completely of packing tape. See the Amazeum from a whole new vantage point 12 feet off the ground in a completely clear tunnel of tape.
Curious Contraptions | June 2 to September 3
In a world where digital amazements are everywhere, these quirky, intricate, hand-crafted mechanical marvels bring back a time when analog ruled. The collection of automata in Curious Contraptions, our new traveling exhibit, shows the creative interplay between simple mechanisms and skilled craftsmanship. Each automata is a masterpiece of creative thought and execution as the cams, gears, cranks, and other simple machines combine in a movable sculpture that moves a character through a short, often humorous, story. Curious Contraptions features exhibits from Cabaret Mechanical Theatre and Science Projects in London, England.
Magnificent Me | starts November 3
