AMOS Here We Come!

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 by late winter. Until then, we will be open to the public at a 50% 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 Mars Rover challenge course, our Teratophoneus dinosaur skeleton, and exciting new gift shop.

AMOS Spotlight Campaign!

We are excited to announce that our museum will be relocating and rebranding as the Asheville Museum of Science.  Last October, 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 and relocation in the center of town. Phase I of our relocation is under way as we begin construction on our new space in the Wells Fargo building on Patton Ave and Church St.

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.
