Adventure Science Center

In 1944 as World War II rolled to an end and our Nation was, once again forward looking and hopeful, Children’s Museum of Nashville was opened in the old University of Nashville building. In 1954, the Center opened the first planetarium in Tennessee; in 1974, it moved to Fort Negley Boulevard on Old Saint Cloud Hill. The name changed through the years as well-most recently from Cumberland Science Museum to Adventure Science Center in November of 2002. Revisions and relocations aside, one thing remains the same: the Center remains true to its mission focus of creating entertaining and amazing exhibits full of interactive learning opportunities for children and adults alike!
