Families can experience the Scott Family Amazeum for free on Wednesday nights thanks to the return of a popular program, officials announced this week.
The museum announced that beginning on Sept. 30, admission to the museum will be free on Wednesday nights from 6-8 p.m. thanks to a grant from the Walker Family Foundation.
From the announcement:
The purpose behind Priceless Nights is to provide access to Amazeum experiences in the arts and sciences for families who are unable to visit during the day. On Priceless Nights guests have access to exhibits, the Hershey’s Lab, 3M Tinkering Hub and outdoor Playscape.
Several safety measures remain in place at the Amazeum due to the pandemic. Guests 10 and older are required to wear face coverings at all times inside and outside the Amazeum, and capacity at the museum is still being limited. As a result, though Priceless Nights are free, reserve tickets are recommended, and entry cannot be guaranteed without a ticket. Priceless Night tickets can be reserved beginning on Monday of each week.
“The Walker Family Foundation is proud to support Priceless Nights at the Scott Family Amazeum,” said Mandy Macke, executive director of the Willard and Pat Walker Foundation. “The Amazeum’s authentic, hands-on learning experiences have been so important for many Northwest Arkansas families and we hope this opportunity will give access to many more families across the region.”

The Scott Family Amazeum is located at 1009 Museum Way in Bentonville.
