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.
Forever Forest | May 25 - September 2, 2019
If you guessed that this exhibit is about trees - you're correct! Forever Forest is a 2,000-square-foot immersive exhibit produced by Omaha Children’s Museum. The exhibit teaches families how their everyday lives are connected to forests through the ways they live, work and play. The exhibit is inspired by the Hardwood Forest Foundation’s educational program, The Truth about Trees. Forever Forest includes hands-on activities focused on forest life and sustainable harvesting; lumber transportation with a realistic kid-sized replica of a Union Pacific engine and mini grapple skidders that children can operate; a tree-top climber; and a mini home under construction in which children can help finish by adding siding, molding and other details.
