Children's Museums

2 Adventure Science Center
Future astronauts, surgeons, engineers, and teachers get a head start at this children's museum. Young minds are stretched and strengthened through unique interactive exhibits like the Adventure Tower, a seven-level journey that engages the imagination with stops like a glass pyramid overlooking the entire city, a display detailing the human epidermis, a walk-in guitar and a tessellation wall. The planetarium offers insight into the heavens and a flight simulator gives kids the chance to soar! (615-862-5160)

1 Frist Center for the Visual Arts - Martin ArtQuest Gallery
Color, texture and line come together for kids at this children's museum. A division of the Frist Center, the Martin ArtQuest Gallery not only gives junior artists the chance to interact with the elements of art, but also create something for themselves. Children are encouraged to experiment with mixed media and are offered insight into historic artistic movements. Allow your little one to engage and begin to foster a lifelong appreciation for art.
