Field Trips and Scholarships
Every year thousands of students and teachers explore all that MASM has to offer. Many teachers across the state work in Title 1 schools where field trips are not an option due to lack of funding. MASM does accept donations in the form of scholarships and grants to ensure students are able to not only explore, but learn as well. MASM is a premier resource for field trips. All of our exhibits are tied to the K-12 Arkansas Department of Education frameworks. We bridge the gap between school curriculum and real world experience. All the money that is donated will help with programs and educational activities at the Museum.
In November 2001, the Museum was selected as a Smithsonian Affiliate. It became the ninetieth museum in the nation to receive this honor and the first institution in Arkansas to have this prestigious recognition. Mid-America Science Museum will open Smithsonian Hall in 2011. By becoming a sponsor, local businesses will have the opportunity to attach their name to a Smithsonian exhibit at MASM for one year. Proceeds directly support the exhibit content in the hall.
Specific Exhibit Development Opportunities
The purpose of Mid-America Science Museum is to explain scientific knowledge and concepts to the public through interactive exhibits, activities, workshops, and educational programs. Corporations with a specific interest in health, science, or art related topics are invited to sponsor an exhibit pertaining to that field. MASM has an outstanding exhibit development team with years of experience and will be happy to create an exhibit pertaining to a certain subject.
Taste of the Holidays
As Mid-America Science Museum’s primary fundraising event, Taste of the Holidays plays an integral role in fueling our efforts to encourage science understanding in ways not ordinarily found in the workplace, classroom or home. Come be a part of this extravagant night as some of Hot Springs’ finest chefs bring out the best of the holidays.

Keep on Truckin’
Put your imagination in gear and Go! This great event gives children of all ages the chance to rub elbows with their local heroes as they explore, honk, and play on dozens of their favorite vehicles. In 2010, the event’s first year, 500 people came out to enjoy the fun. This was not only an entertaining afternoon, but educational as well. Each participant (Police, Fire, US Postal Service, SW Dairy Farmers, etc.) explained their occupation and how they impact the community. Sponsorships for this event are also welcomed, please visit our website at www.MidAmericaMuseum.org or call 501.767.3461 x30.
