Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS) is the premier exploratory science experience in downtown Asheville. With fully interactive exhibits, street level access, and a variety of educational programs, AMOS is a must visit for the whole family! AMOS is currently in our Soft Opening phase, as we continue to complete the rest of our exhibits. All admission prices are half off as we look towards our Grand Opening in the summer of 2017.

We went while they were in the process of changing things around and expanding but for the money and what they had at the time it was good. Would go back again.

Our 1 year old loved the climbing structure and the toddler nest. It is a very small museum but he enjoyed running around inside.

Great place if you have very small children. We have 14 and 12 yo girls. We were done walking through in 20 minutes. They have some work to do to add exhibits to make the visit worthwhile for parents and older children.
