My 2 children (11 & 8) love the Adventure Science Center. We go for special HomesCool days as well as field trips on a typical day. My children love the hands-on exhibits. There is a huge tower of exhibits in the center of the center. Being in Music City there are plenty of musical exhibits. The space & NASA exhibits are always a hit. My science guy is so in his element here and even my non-science oriented child learns so much without realizing it. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The price is great and we can spend all day there without a problem. The planetarium is wonderful if you get the chance to check it out on your visit.

This is our favorite science museum for older kids. We loved the crawl-through heart. Most of all, we loved climbing to the top of the observatory to look out at the city. The space area was quite nice and would be worth the trip for it alone.

I scheduled a homeschool group field trip last year to the Adventure Science Center. The kids loved all the hands on exhibits! If you go you definitely should do the optional experiment for an extra fee. We did the liquid nitrogen experiment package. The program was awesome! All the kids still talk about it!

This is a great facility. I will tell you that it can get a little hectic in the center of the museum as your kids can climb up and up into a playground-type object and get lost if you aren't careful. There also tends to be a LOT of kids here at one time. (It's also quite pricey) I recommend just going for a scheduled trip to the planetarium and enjoy that.
