AMOS Here We Come!

Thank you to all of those who have visited & supported the Colburn Earth Science Museum throughout its time in Asheville. After 24 years in Pack Place a new adventure awaits. Our doors have officially closed on the Colburn Earth Science Museum, as we begin our relocation. We are incredibly excited to embark on our new journey as the Asheville Museum of Science!


We’re Temporarily Closed

Our doors will re-open this fall as the Asheville Museum of Science!

AMOS Spotlight Campaign!

We are excited to announce that our museum will be relocating and rebranding as the Asheville Museum of Science.  Last October, the museum was awarded a $400,000 grant from the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority which kicked-off our campaign! This grant money is a key component to our Spotlight Campaign and relocation in the center of town. Phase I of our relocation is under way as we begin construction on our new space in the Wells Fargo building on Patton Ave and Church St.

To learn more about this grant and our exciting future as we transition to the Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS), read this article from Mountain Xpress and click through our Spotlight Campaign Materials.
