Each Tinkerfest will be along the 100 block of Sherman Street just outside the museum’s main entrance. The adjustment will prevent overcrowding and allow more staff to be devoted to ongoing sanitization efforts during each event. Additionally for safety, all guests 10 and older are required to wear a mask during the event and inside the museum. There will also be hand sanitizer available at each activity.
Tinkerfest events are included in the museum’s regular daily admission: $10 for adults, $8 for children 1-12 and free for infants younger than 1. Seniors, teachers, Little Rock city employees and active and retired military are admitted for $8. SNAP recipients plus an additional five people are admitted for $2.
Tinkerfest is sponsored by Baldwin & Shell; Dassault Falcon Jet; Entergy; Garver; Mr. Plastic; Southwest Power Pool; Arkansas School for Math, Science and the Arts and Associated General Contractors Arkansas.
