"Museum of Discovery goes feral on Jimmy Fallon!" "Just like in the movies", The Museum has come to life, and is outside of her walls. (see YouTube video below)
Just as libraries are not all stodgy and quiet any longer, museums refuse to stay within their bounds.
Summer Reading Programs of 2014, sponsored by the ALA (American Library Association) themed this summer as Science & Technology. The Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Arkansas partnered with the ALA in presenting stem based summer day camps, and Fizz, Boom, Science, a 45-minute demonstration of science at its funnest.
The well planned program taught, or really reiterated what the students had learned recently in science in school. It was a good refresher on matter; gases, solids and liquids. The experimenter came from the Museum of Discover, to Russellville, AR, to give this demonstration.
It was a packed house.
This shows how halls of learning, such as libraries and museums are evolving with the times. They are giving more than ever, trying to keep services free or minuscule, so that everyone can participate.
I will make a small plug for millage tax increases for libraries. So many times when these come up for a vote, taxpayers think it is a tax increase, it is not. If a library is asking for a millage increase, that means they are requesting a bigger piece of the pie, from the taxes that are already levied.
Please vote yes, for your local libraries! Most are operating on ghostly budgets. Many are getting funding established in the 1970's or earlier.

Big Remodel and New Scientific Direction
The Museum of Discovery reopened January 2012, not only was this due to an over three million dollar remodel, but a new direction toward fun and twisted Science. Shortly thereafter, Discovery Museum started having After Dark at the Discovery Museum for big kids, and it is a highly recommended low cost trip.
It is a beautiful day as I head downtown to visit a couple of our downtown museums. My main goal is to check out the displays, and take some fantastic pictures.
I am glad that there are groups and individuals who grasp a section of History, and reenact it either in photos, paintings, sculptures and other forms of art.
Watch out for the Smithsonian Institute Free Museum day, usually in September, which will allow each household to download a Free Ticket for 2 to a participating museum you would like to attend.
Little Rock, Arkansas museums and centers are very reasonably priced as it is. Often they only ask for donations. At the Clinton Library and there is a Museum in the Clinton Presidential Center, and is only $7.00..Students & Sr $5.00
This year only one Little Rock Museum, will participate in the Smithsonian, National Free Museum Day, that will be the the Historic Arkansas Museum,
Note: Do not get the "Discovery" club mixed up with the Museum! It is totally a different creature. I chose the Museum of Discovery to visit on National Free Museum day.
There is a lot of fun stuff to do if you are a kid, or have kids. .
Part of the reason I wrote this article, is because I wanted to make sure and share the Free Museum Passes day sponsored by The Smithsonian™. They allowed me to take my camera along, and shoot photos.
There were children of all ages enjoying all the fun.hands on stuff you get to do. It is like learning and finding out by scientific discovery...It is a Museum of Discovery.

Inside of the Museum of Discovery
Arkansas Arts Center
It may surprise much of the world to realize that Arkansas has a large Art and Cultural society. Little Rock Arkansas is host to the Arkansas Historic Museum, The Clinton Museum, the Little Rock Arts Center.
The Arkansas Historic Museum has something going on all year long. Around Halloween they begin to add a little scary movement to the historic re-enactments. This is a breeding ground for young actors. The entire area is less than a quarter mile from the Green Corridor. This includes the Clinton Library, Heifer International and the River Walk Area, next to the Arkansas River.
