Located in Pack Place, the heart of Asheville’s thriving downtown cultural area, Colburn Earth Science Museum ignites imagination, enhances science capability, and unlocks innovation. For more than 50 years, the Colburn Museum has fostered an appreciation for the Earth and its resources and environments through its exhibits, educational programming, and the care of its collection. A stunning gem and mineral collection, permanent and rotating exhibits, and a warm and professional staff make each visit a new learning experience.
The winter months are approaching! As the days become colder, we would like to remind everyone of our snow policy. If Asheville City Schools are delayed, we have regular business hours. If Asheville City Schools are closed, our museum will open at noon. If unsure about our hours, please do not hesitate to call our museum at (828) 254-7162. We will also post hours on our website during inclement weather. We will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so our staff can enjoy the holidays with their families.
