Interesting place for the kids. Lots to see and explore. Watched planetarium show and while informative was left feeling like I missed something. A little pricey overall but the kids had a lot of fun which was the goal.

I recently went to the Center with my 15 month old daughter. I read others post about not going in the morning due to large school groups and should have listened. If I go back it would be after 1:00 p.m. so there would be less of a crowd. The center itself is awesome, even for adults. So many hands... More

Nice time, not the best science center we visit, but my son enjoyed 3 hours easily. Very crowded over the weekend.

We stopped in late on a rainy Sunday afternoon after doing some sight seeing while in Nashville. We only had an hour or so before they closed but they weren't too busy so it worked out pretty good. Since we got there towards closing time we got a reduced rate which worked out pretty good. From the moment we walked... More

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!
