#Adventure Science Center is an independent, not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to igniting curiosity and inspiring the lifelong discovery of science since 1945.
#Fly in simulated weightlessness through the Test Bed gallery in Space Chase, where you can experience the effects of microgravity. Discover the challenges facing astronauts during EVA missions, and immerse yourself among the 6.5 million stars.
#Climb to the top of the 75-foot Adventure Tower to discover a spectacular view of the Nashville skyline. The exhibit is packed with dynamic, interactive science activities.
#Check out the award-winning BodyQuest exhibit and discover the power of your own brain waves as you play a round of Mind Ball. The exhibit allows you to explore your body – from churning food in the digestive tract to understanding muscle movements.
#ScienceQuest Camp at Adventure Science Center provides a wide range of science enrichment programs for youth in grades K-9. Programs combine science, technology, engineering and math in ways that encourage kids to actively discover and examine concepts.
#Every few months we open our doors from 6:30 to 10 p.m. to adults-only for a night of science and fun. Each Way Late Play Date has a special theme with cool science activities to take part in. All the Center’s exhibits are adult-friendly, too!
