Mission Statement

The Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS) is Western North Carolina’s home for experiential science learning, discovery, and exploration.  AMOS strives to spark the imagination and foster lifelong curiosity.

We are incredibly excited to embark on our new journey as the Asheville Museum of Science! Currently, we are working hard to complete our exhibits and become fully operational. Until then, we will be open to the public at a 25% discount, seven days a week!

We have plenty of science to come and explore including our brand new Colburn Hall of Minerals, the STEM lab, our interactive panorama screen, the AMOS Mars Rover, our Teratophoneus dinosaur skeleton and fossil dig, Southern Appalachian Forest, Toddler Nest, Hurricane Simulator, fun temporary exhibits, and an exciting new gift shop.

AMOS Spotlight Campaign!

October 2015, the museum was awarded a $400,000 grant from the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority which kicked-off our campaign! This grant money is a key component to our Spotlight Campaign, rebranding from the Colburn Earth Science Museum, and relocation in the center of town. Phase I of our relocation is complete in the Wells Fargo building on Patton Ave and Church St.  As we are in our soft opening phase, we will continue to build new exhibits in anticipation of our completion later this year.

To learn more about this grant and our exciting future as we transition to the Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS), read this article from Mountain Xpress and click through our Spotlight Campaign Materials.
