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

Its the easiest way for you to help support us while we help provide for you!
