Brought my 6 year old and he loved it. So much to do and see and it's all educational. We also got to see a film on solar eclipses, which we loved. Can't wait to go back!

Despite age and use, museum maintIned in great shape and keeps the kids and adults interested. View from the top of the tower is unbeatable , but gets hot later in the day. Plan on spending plant of time so you won't be rushed.

Went here recently and enjoyed the visit. If you go after 3:00pm, the tickets are discounted. We enjoyed seeing the planetarium and learning about the constellations that are visible in the Nashville sky. There are plenty of displays that will appeal to at least one...More

This was my first visit to the Adventure Science Center. What a neat place! I took my niece and they loved it. The planetarium was the highlight for me but my niece who is 8 loved the moon walking.
