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 is included in regular museum admission ($10 for adults, $8 for children 12 and younger and free for members and younger than 1.)
Be sure to mark you calendar for the upcoming Tinkerfests:
Purchase a museum membership and receive free admission for one year!
Tinkerfest is sponsored by Baldwin & Shell Construction Company; Dassault Falcon Jet; Entergy; Garver; Mr Plastic; Southwest Power Pool; Arkansas School For Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts and AGC Arkansas.
