What's a Tinkerfest?

Tinkerfest, the Amazeum's one-day celebration of creativity, curiosity and hands-on learning, brings makers, tinkerers, artists, and creatives from diverse disciplines together for a day of family fun and discovery. Tinkerfest features science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) activities created by the local maker community, partner museums from across the country, and the Amazeum team. Admission to Tinkerfest is included in paid daily admission and membership.
