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.
Tape and Tunnels: Ordinary Materials, Extraordinary Uses | June 2 to October 21
