Welcome to the Asheville Museum of Science!

Our Mission

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 for you to explore! We proudly showcase the Colburn Hall of Minerals, our self guided and interactive STEM lab, an interactive panorama screen, the Teratophoneus dinosaur skeleton and fossil displays, Southern Appalachian Forest tree climb, Toddler Nest, fun temporary exhibits, and our unique Museum Store.


 Our Museum Store is now OPEN ONLINE!

As we are all dealing with current circumstances that inhibit regular activities; here at AMOS, we decided to provide an online store for you, with shipping options available. Give us a call with questions or help with ordering.

By having an online store we are able to:

*Provide parents, caregivers, and adults with permanent and fun tools for at-home education; including games, brainteasers, kits, activities, books and gifts.

*By purchasing items from our online store, you are helping us maintain an income for AMOS as all proceeds go right back into exhibits, education, employment, and more unique retail items that focus on STEAM and eco-consciousness! Its the easiest way for you to help support us while we help provide for you!

Our Online Store offers:

Mineral Specimens (rocks, gemstones, fossils)
Educational Materials (STEAM themed kits and activities to do at home)
Books (children’s books, educational resources, general knowledge, local authors and fun reads)
AMOS logo gear (apparel, stickers, magnets and more!)
Eco-conscious and unique gifts (reusable straw sets, gift sets for adults)
