Visitors will dream, create, invent and enjoy.


BENTONVILLE, Ark. (April 18, 2017) — A new exhibit at the Scott Family Amazeum will have visitors combine learning, creativity and fun in an extraordinary experience that will engage both children and adults.

Imaginate provides hands-on opportunities for families to experience pathways to innovation. This exhibit includes multiple activities that aim to inspire the creator that lies within all of us. For example, visitors can make, test and observe paper airplanes improving design that will allow for optimal performance in an obstacle course. They can take ordinary materials and find ways to make them extraordinary. Guests will experience collaboration by using their heartbeats to move lights in a large sculpture.

 “We’re excited that families can experience the joy of creating and innovating together,” said Erik Smith, director of exhibits at the Scott Family Amazeum. “This exhibit is packed with activities that will definitely appeal to everyone in the family.”

Imaginate was developed by the Arkansas Discovery Network, a statewide museum partnership operated by Museum of Discovery, Little Rock, Arkansas. The Arkansas Discovery Network was established through a grant by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.

This exhibit will open to the public at noon on April 22nd and is included in general admission. Members will have the opportunity to preview the exhibit from 9am-12pm. Imaginate will remain at Scott Family Amazeum through September 2017.
