Visit our site

Adventure Science Center is an independent, not-for-profit science and technology center. 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. Perched atop a hill with spectacular views of the city, our 44,000 square foot space features more than 175 hands-on exhibits focused on biology, astronomy, physics, earth science, energy, weather, sound, and space and is home to state-of-the-art Sudekum Planetarium

Explore a day in the life of an astronaut in our Space Chase exhibition gallery, where you can experience the effects of zero gravity and discover the relationships between the planets. 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 spectacular view of downtown Nashville. In the Sudekum Planetarium, you can be immersed in stories covering everything from the birth of the universe to the extreme weather faced here on Earth. 

PLUS, Adventure Science Center brings new traveling exhibitions in regularly, offers an incredible lineup of programs, classes, labs, and camps, and so much more.
