Adventure Science Center in Nashville, Tennessee

Last weekend we went to Nashville for the first time and visited the Adventure Science Center.


After we finished talking to the ticket attendant, Jacob and James ran straight to the sound/music making area and stayed there for 15 minutes until it was time for us to go to the Planetarium for our dome-theatre show “The Sun Revealed: Total Eclipse.” After the show, we all tried out moonwalking. We had to make big strides just to move forward a tiny bit under the influence of the moon’s weak gravity. The whole time I was being hoisted up, I tried to imagine what would happen if our pants got ripped in mid-air. Thankfully, nothing of the sort happened.

Back in the music and sound area, James tried out conducting a symphony.

We explored all the exhibits, areas and activities, which took us about 2 hours. We especially enjoyed the 3D printer, the music-making area, the tsunami and tornado simulating apparatus, and the “space” room. In the “space” room, we felt as if we were floating in dark outer space surrounded by all the shimmering stars. So cool!

Thanks so much for reading about our family’s adventures! Until next time.
