Amazeum YOU

“No assignments. No tests. No grades. Just playful exploration. And sharing.” This is how the Scott Family Amazeum (which just celebrated 5 years!) describes Amazeum YOU, the online portal which is stocked with video demonstrations by the Amazeum staff on everything from ice balloons to scribble machines to confetti poppers. In addition to the digital learning archive, the Amazeum “fungineers” live stream demonstrations each Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 10am on Facebook.

Check it out below, your kids will be making and tinkering in no time!

The Crystal Bridges team assembled and distributed 12,000 kits to the community

My Museum Kit

When classes, camps, and creative outlets were canceled to help stop the spread of coronavirus, the Education and Community Engagement departments at Crystal Bridges sprung into action to develop a project that would bring art to children in underserved communities around Northwest Arkansas.

The result was the My Museum Kit, a physical art kit that offers lessons, projects, and supplies inspired by artworks in the Crystal Bridges collection. The Museum Kits are now available for purchase online. Additionally, when you buy a kit, your purchase provides another free kit to a child in our community. You may also make a donation without receiving a kit to further support bringing creativity to youth in Northwest Arkansas.

My Museum Kits are best suited for grades K-5, but offer fun for the whole family!

Learn about the evolution of the kit, its community impact and how to purchase below.

Just a few examples of Northwest Arkansas’ commitment to fostering an environment of learning and curiosity! Stay safe. Stay curious.
