|About these ratings|
Take a break from history and country music and treat your kids to some hands-on educational entertainment. Interactive displays allow little ones to learn about science, from what goes on inside the human body to what goes on thousands of light-years above our heads. Kids can try their hands at flying planes, working in an ambulance and becoming an astronaut. Regular demonstrations and lectures help children learn from what they are doing, and shows in the planetarium are fun for the whole family.
Sitting just south of Downtown Nashville, the Adventure Science Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 to 5:30 pm. General admission is about $12 for adults and $9 for children ages 3 to 12. Entry to the planetarium and certain simulation activities costs a little more.
