A fun day away from the normal might just lead to an adventure for the entire family at the Adventure Science Center. With many different programs, exhibits and things to do, this attraction is sure to keep you busy all day long. Enjoy the daily Sci-Bites Program with 10-minute demonstrations and hands-on fun or spend a little time in the Planetarium. Parents can watch their children learn as they have fun and maybe learn something themselves.
The center was started back in 1944 and the planetarium was opened in 1952. These two attractions have provided plenty of fun for so many children growing up in Nashville. It started as a Children's museum and later changed the name to the Cumberland Science Museum. In November of 2002, the name changed again to the Adventure Science Center. One thing hasn't change, however. The center still provides fun for children while they learn all about science.
With many exhibits and interactive experiences, you can get lost in the fun of science all day long. The Adventure Tower provides excitement as you lift a care, crawl through a heart and enjoy the giant glass pyramid. Blue Max is another one of the adventures, which allows you to pilot an aircraft through a dogfight, learn how to fly and have fun with all the different maneuvers. Another popular attraction is BodyQuest, which shows you a day in the life of the human body.
There's always something new going on and the Adventure Science Center serves over 300,000 visitors a year. The best time to go, if you're not involved in some type of group going together, is after 1pm during the week. Weekday mornings tend to be very busy during the school year because many school groups choose this time to visit the center.
