We are dedicated to delivering innovative, dynamic learning experiences that open minds to the wonders of science and technology, fostering an understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Explore a day in the life of an astronaut in our Space Chase exhibition gallery then climb to new heights on the Kinetic Climber in all-new Adventure Gallery. Step into BodyQuest exhibit, where you'll experience health like you've never seen it before, featuring a laser target gallery that demonstrates how the immune system works. From learning how to lift a car without breaking a sweat to crawling through a beating heart, the Adventure Tower is a pillar of imagination that ends with our incredible view of downtown Nashville.
