AMOS Here We Come!

Thank you to all of those who have visited & supported the Colburn Earth Science Museum for 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! In the heart of downtown Asheville, AMOS will be expanding from earth sciences into a broader science museum by adding programming and exhibits that incorporate biology and botany (animal and plant life), 21st century STEM skills, technology, and the humanities into the earth science disciplines of meteorology, geology, oceanography, and astronomy.

Mass Extinction Beer Release Party at Twin Leaf

Join us, Thursday, August 25th from 6:00-8:30pm

Twin-Leaf_Official-Logo

 

Twin Leaf Brewing teamed up with us to create two versions of Mass Extinction Imperial Stout, one aged in bourbon barrels for a year and one aged in stainless for four months. Both brands will raise funds for the nonprofit’s current spotlight campaign.

Prior to starting Twin Leaf Brewing, Tim Weber, Head Brewer and Owner, made his living as an engineer. “I want to be able to pass along my love of the sciences to my four year-old son,” said Weber.  Tim reached out to the museum staff to see how he could fund raise and, possibly more importantly, raise awareness of the museum’s upcoming expansion.

Mass Extinction will be available on Thursday, August 25th, with more details to come and bottles will be for sale in Twin Leaf’s South Slope on Friday, August 25th at 3pm. Only a limited amount of bottles will be available of both brands of the beer.  Stock up on this delicious beer for your winter cellar collection.

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.
