Adventure Science Center#17 in Best Things To Do in Nashville
Price & Hours
Take a break from history and country music and treat your kids to some hands-on educational entertainment. Interactive displays at the Adventure Science Center 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 get behind the controls of a flight simulator, learn what it takes to become an astronaut and step inside a face-altering photo booth to get a peek at what their future selves will look like. Regular demonstrations and lectures help children learn from the center's interactive elements, and shows in the planetarium are entertaining for the whole family. Recent visitors praised the hardworking staff but recommend avoiding an afternoon visit when the center gets overcrowded with school groups.
Sitting a little more than 2 miles south of downtown Nashville, the Adventure Science Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adults pay $15.95; youths ages 2 to 12 enter for $11.95 and children younger than 2 get in for free. Admission to the planetarium and certain simulation activities costs extra. For more information about the exhibits and upcoming events, visit the Adventure Science Center website.

While all the bars host live music acts, each venue has a distinct atmosphere that makes it stand out from other honky-tonks along Broadway. Some of the most popular bars include:
