Asheville Museum of Science

The Asheville Museum of Science (formerly known as the Colburn Earth Science Museum) has served as Western North Carolina’s home for experiential science learning, discovery, and exploration for more than fifty years. At the recently renovated museum, you can be a geologist in the Colburn Hall of Minerals, where Burham S. Colburn’s collections live on; manipulate topography in real time; dig for fossils and say hello to our Teratophoneus curriei dinosaur skeleton; watch the waters of the French Broad River table change paths as you uncover the ecologist inside you; and explore new hands-on activities and demonstrations in the STEM Lab!
