The award-winning Mid-America Science Museum sits on 21 wooded acres in the shadow of the Ouachita National Forest and near Hot Springs National Park. The rich geography and geology of the land lends itself to excellent observation opportunities along with a plethora of flora and fauna viewing and interactive activities.
Exhibits are carefully designed to help students learn science concepts and skills to do what scientists do:
- Observe the natural world and ask questions about what they see
- Actively investigate its components, systems, and cycles
- Share what they learn with others
The Hall of Wonder
The Museum was recently renovated and now presents over 100 hands-on science exhibits throughout the 73,500 square feet of the Museum and in the woods surrounding the facility.
