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 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, Terrabox elevation simulator, Toddler Nest, Hurricane Simulator, fun temporary exhibits, and an exciting new gift shop.


 Coming Soon!

 

Anticipated for July 2018, AMOS is excited to announce the installation of the French Broad River water table.  Funding provided by the Duke Energy Water Resources Foundation has made this exhibit possible.  Stay tuned for an exciting unveiling event this summer!
