We went here and we had a blast! The "Space Walk" was really neat! The planetarium show was also cool. If you went to the top of the jungle gym, the view was amazing, but the Subway okay. We ordered a Personal Pizza, but we got a Flatizza or whatever. The manager of the cafe was rude and couldn't understand... More

Took my grandchildren to the Adventure Science Center on a Saturday. It was very crowded. The computers were down, so they were trying to figure admissions with paper and pen. I think it was a little pricey. $13.00 and adult and $11.00 for children. The employees were all very nice. Can't say the same for some of the visitors. Some... More

I love going to science museums and hands on places. This was a fun afternoon trip that I went to with a couple friends. Even though we are in our mid 20s we had a lot of fun alongside some of the children. There is a lot to learn, you can touch and feel around things and that makes the... More

Most exhibits are hands on. Many kids playing on tower in the middle. Still interesting to walk around and learn. Great place to spend a few hours if it's raining, etc. Free parking on site.

Every time we visit Nashville one of our favorite things to do is come to Adventure Science. Our son has been coming since he was 6 and is now 9...never bored. Great fun for the whole family and lots of learning without them even realizing it. Reasonably priced and always a great day of fun!

This place was a blast. For me and for my kids. I love science and I love it even more when they pack a building full of hands on science experiments and information. We bought a very reasonably priced year long membership for $90 (mil discount) which will pay for itself after three visits!! With the membership we got 4... More

We took our 12 year old there and were looking forward to a great, educational, interesting experience. It's fun, but actually more suitable for kids a bit younger than 12.

This place was the best. To be able to expose your kids to science in a fun way that takes hours is pure genius. The 4 year old was asking to go back the next morning. They have plenty of hands-on activities that the kids can actually learn how things work while having a ball.

The cost of entry is very reasonable for this gem. The museum had really fun and informative exhibits that were appropriate for kids and adults, too. We spent hours in here with our niece and nephew, 6 & 7 years old. There's an excellent view of the Nashville skyline from the top of the adventure tower. :) 4 stars only... More

This was our first visit to Adventure Science Center and it was definitely one of the best science centers we have been to. Due to our membership at a local science center, we are members of The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), which allowed us to get into the center for free. If you are not aware of this program,... More
