Make, play, tinker, and explore with regional experts, mechanics, craftspeople, and artists at Tinkerfest! Join us at the Scott Family Amazeum, located in downtown Bentonville, Saturday, September 23, from 10am-5pm for a day of fun for the whole family. 

Tinkering is all about hands-on experiences, learning from failures, and spending unstructured time exploring and inventing. It’s an open-ended creative process where the focus is on personal meaning, not just the product. Tinkering is about the journey, not just the destination.

Tinkerfest is a one-day festival celebrating creativity, curiosity, and innovation. At Tinkerfest, makers, artists, and tinkerers come together to showcase their work, inviting you to join in the DIY fun. You can try book binding, taking apart a real car with real tools, woodworking, metal manipulations and more! Experience hands-on, open-ended discovery celebrating science, technology, engineering, art, and creativity. Reclaim, reuse, and reconstruct cast-off materials, learn new skills, and explore innovative making. 

The Amazeum’s Tinkerfest is part of a larger regional Tinkerfest collaboration at three other museums in our region this September. Show your Amazeum membership card at each museum to receive free admission! You can find more information about the regional Tinkerfest events at
