You Can Be Indoors and Still Have Lots of Fun!

There are lots of great activities and places to play around Northwest Arkansas, even when you can’t be outside. Learn how you can have fun indoors!

If you haven’t been to the Jones Center, you don’t know what you’re missing. At the Jones Center in downtown Springdale, it’s all about active fun.

They have an indoor year-round ice arena, a junior-Olympic size pool plus another pool with a slide, a basketball court,  indoor track, fitness equipment and more. 

You can swim or ice skate or play hockey indoors, learn gymnastics or ballet, play basketball or volleyball in the gym, get fit, learn a new sport and more.  




The Jones Center is in Springdale 

922 East Emma Avenue

And have you been to the Amazeum?

It’s a hands-on, interactive museum for kids and their families in Bentonville.

They have exhibits, programs, workshops and more to get you laughing, playing, creating and having a gas. 

Have you ever wanted to climb a tree inside, or go into an indoor cave? You can do it at the Amazeum. Or, soak up the fun at the indoor Nature Valley Water Amazements space. Careful, you’ll probably get wet!

Explore Innovation Alley, the 3M Tinkering Hub, the Art Studio and Hershey’s Lab. Transport objects through conveyors, chutes and tubes at the General Mills Lift, Load & Haul center then climb into a real truck cab and imagining driving it away.

You’ll be amazed at how much there is to do at the Amazeum. Check it out!
