BENTONVILLE (KFSM) -- The new children's museum in Bentonville opened on Wednesday (July 16) after a 10 year process. The Scott Family Amazeum features eight different exhibits, including a nature and weather center where children can learn about tornadoes and play with water toys.
Nickelodeon is also a sponsor of the Amazeum, and they have a Nickelodeon play lab for children to interact with familiar characters, like Spongebob Squarepants.
What differentiates this children's museum, from others, is an exhibit that is unique to Northwest Arkansas;The homestead cabin and farm teaches children about the history of Northwest Arkansas, with a life-size cabin and apple trees. Children can learn to pick fruits from the tree and veggies from the ground, as if they're on a real farm.
Another sponsor includes General Mills, where they have a lift and haul exhibit where children can learn the ins and outs of production.
Admission into the Amazeum is $9.50, and children under 2-years-old get in for free.
