Experience the effects of zero gravity in the EVA Experience, or take a simulated walk on the moon. Tour the solar system and explore the relationships between the planets at one of many interactive stations. In the spectacular BodyQuest exhibit, you'll experience health like you've never seen it before! Take part in Body Battles, featuring a laser target gallery that demonstrates how the immune system works. Step inside a giant brain to learn about nerves and synapses, get wet at the water table as you explore blood flow throughout the body, and much more! A pillar of imagination, the Adventure Tower is packed with exciting scientific exploration. Climb into the cockpit of BlueMax, our full-motion flight simulator. Learn how to lift a car without breaking a sweat. Crawl through a beating heart. Then climb to the top to reach the Tower’s giant glass pyramid and a view of downtown Nashville. The Sudekum Planetarium presents programs that spotlight various topics from the birth of the universe to the history of the space program. It's a one-of-a-kind full-dome digital experience!
