Established in 1944, the Children’s Museum of Nashville resided on 2nd Avenue South in downtown Nashville. World War II was coming to an end and the nation was beginning to look to the future. Sgt. John Ripley Forbes’ vision for Nashville’s future was focused on children. His enthusiasm for a children’s museum sparked some of the city’s most prominent and influential citizens, including the museum’s first president, Vernon Sharp, Jr. A lease on the old University of Nashville building was signed in November 1944, and on Oct. 30, 1945, the Children’s Museum of Nashville opened its doors to the public.

What a fantastic place! They had plenty to do to keep you busy for a full day. We have kids under 6 and they had a blast, but there was a lot for older kids to do. I even saw adults by themselves having a good time. This is a great place to take your family if you are visiting Nashville.

Very family friendly & a great indoor place to spend either a half or full day. Lots & lots of activities, very educative - right from solar system, space exploration, human anatomy, experimental activities - acceleration, speed, distance, motion etc. Specific area for 5 & under includes - Lego blocks, huge paint screen, color & shape recognition etc. There is planetarium with 3 different shows everyday - 50% off on admission for members & full price for non-members. There is also Subway inside with a good seating area, if that gets crowded there are Yellow and Green rooms with additional seating or pinic area. Overall a great place, worth visiting for families with kids, this place offers lots of practical knowledge.

Great place to take the kids every one in a while! My son loves just running around seeing everything. It's nice that they also today some content to keep you coming back. Well worth getting the annual pass.

I've Loved Adventure Science Center since I moved to Nashville. I've been to yoga under the stars, one of their way late play dates and on a work group outing. Every single time I'm impressed and I can't wait to bring up my nephew there someday so he can experience everything Through The Eyes of a child.

I have to be kind of honest, I was a little starstruck the day we went as Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were there with the family!! Of all days to go and they be there was phenomenal in itself. However, the museum was crazy awesome. So much fun for kids AND adults. I would and plan on going back with my family! All sorts of learning and excitement.
