Overview

The mission of Mid-America Science Museum is to stimulate interest in science, to promote public understanding of the sciences, and to encourage life-long science education through interactive exhibits and programs. The Museum also serves as a premier tourism attraction in Arkansas. The purpose of Mid-America Science Museum is to explain scientific knowledge and concepts to the public through interactive exhibits, activities, workshops, and educational programs. The Museum seeks to stimulate a lifelong interest in science, spark curiosity, reshape attitudes and stir the imagination. Our goal is informal science education that encourages learning in ways not ordinarily found in the workplace, classroom, or home. To achieve this purpose, the Museum will maintain the highest standards in providing quality exhibits, programs, and services for students, citizens, and visitors to Arkansas.

We took our nieces and nephews, but this was super fun even for the adults in our group. Reasonably priced, lots to learn and explore, and always fun, hands-on activities (souvenirs?)

Took the boys and they had fun. They especially loved the cave adventure and the treehouse. Another favorite was the water exhibit. They had a blast with that. Will definitely return when in this area.

Yes there are, towards the back of the museum grounds. The area is also well shaded to help with the heat.
