A few of the exhibits at the museum include "Amazing You," which deals with the human body; "Discovery Hall," where physics, engineering and math are investigated; and "Earth Journeys," which examines global earth processes and extreme weather in Arkansas. Learn about “Amazing Airways,” how to build things in the “Tinkering Studio,” play with a puzzle of the Arkansas River, visit the “Extreme Weather Station,” and view a huge topographic map of the state. Also at the museum are "Tornado Alley,” where visitors can “ride out” the 1999 twister that hit Little Rock while listening to memories of those who experienced it; “Room to Grow”; the Window of Wonder (WOW) Gallery; and live animal habitats. Named by Mensa Society in 2013 as one of the nation’s top 10 science museums.
