  • Absolutely tons of things to do! So much fun with many exhibits. Even the play area is accessible for adults. Which is a really great touch as you can read the plaques up on the wall to your kids if need be. We even saw the night watch at the planetarium which was a great show! Best highlight was walking on the moon simulation for my kids and I.
  • What a great place to bring you children! There is so much to do! It's a very hands on learning experience and kids love it. The space section is awesome! The moonwalk was a hit with the kids. Climbing to the third floor to have a 360 view of Nashville is breathtaking! The view of the city was perfect. Everyone young and old in our group had a fantastic time visiting the Adventure Science Center. It should be on your must do list!
