- Adventure Science Center’s mission is to open every mind to the wonders of science and innovation, fostering a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
- Revenue earned from events, admission, memberships, sponsorships, and donations help support our mission and ensure that we can continue offering incredible community programs like free admission for all MNPS students and our Curiosity Membership level which is a subsidized membership for families who participate in certain government assistance programs.
- We’re also excited to announce that – in celebration of our 75th anniversary – we will be offering $0.75 student admission for all TN students starting in January. We’re hopeful that we can continue this program and potentially expand it beyond 2022. We’ve also developed an arboretum that commemorates our milestone anniversary and expands learning opportunities beyond our four walls. Through a series of QR codes and interpretive signage, the 75th Anniversary Arboretum provides free learning opportunities about the good of trees and serves as a catalyst for telling the story of the Bass Street Community – Nashville’s first free black neighborhood – which resides partially on our site.
