Children's Museum of Arkansas
Putter BertSome people believe we've come a long way as a society in terms of our capacity to talk to one another, Putter Bert says. "I'm not so sure, but I do think places like the Children's Museum can bring people together in a common cause."
In practical terms, this comes down to making a real effort to respond to
the needs of the whole community, not just part of it.
"Economic diversity means we have visitors with no money and visitors with a lot of," Ben says. "It means a lot to me that we were able to serve over 100,000 people our first year of operation."
Bert, 32, says the museum defines itself as a collecting educational institution.
"We offer parenting programs and programs for after school and breaks, ranging from how to make ice cream in a coffee can to building three-legged stools." she says.
Bert is particularly proud of the museum's Free Friday program where museum admission is free.
"We started out with about 15 people," she says. "Now there a about 500 people who take advantage of this program."
