Amazeum Offers Free Admission for Government Workers Impacted by Federal Shutdown

Federal Employees Can Visit Free Starting Saturday, January 26


BENTONVILLE, Ark. (January 24, 2019) — The Scott Family Amazeum is offering federal workers impacted by the government shutdown free admission to the museum until the government reopens.
