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 to come and explore, including our Colburn Hall of Minerals, the STEM lab, our interactive panorama screen, Teratophoneus dinosaur skeleton and fossil dig, Southern Appalachian Forest tree climb, Terrabox elevation simulator, Toddler Nest, fun temporary exhibits, and museum store.

Now open!

AMOS is excited to announce the installation of the French Broad River water table!  Come splash with us and learn how human actions affect the health of our local river ecosystem.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for making the newest AMOS exhibit possible: Duke Energy Water Resources Fund, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, New Belgium Brewing Company, Hedrick Industries, and Jeffrey V. & Dianna Goodman.
