Asheville Museum of ScienceAsheville Museum of Science
The doors to the Asheville Museum of Science open on November 11th, 2016. The journey to our new location, in the heart of downtown Asheville, is one with a rich history of many twists and turns, re-branding and expanding to meet the educational needs of our Asheville community. We are excited to provide a premier science experience, exploring the science of place in western North Carolina. Our exhibits detail the connections between astronomy, geology, weather, climate, ecology, and paleontology to form the beautiful landscape we call home. The story of AMOS begins with one man’s extensive mineral collection. From personal mineral collection to full scale science museum, the story begins almost a century ago.
