One of the mainstays of the Adventure Science Center’s exhibits is the Adventure Tower, a science playground where kids climb up a tower with many hands-on activities on the way. The Adventure Tower also has an unparalleled view of Nashville from the top. The BlueMax ride is another popular attraction. For an additional fee, kids can pilot their own simulated plane, capable of 360-degree turns as the rider participates in aerial acrobatics, flight training, and more. Another popular exhibit is in the Health section, where kids can climb through the ventricles of a gigantic beating heart.

The Nashville Science Center is also home to the newest planetarium in Nashville, the Sudekum Planetarium. The planetarium features several shows about the constellations in the sky over Nashville, the planets, and at certain times of year, a laser show program that combines laser lights with special effects in a variety of differently-themed shows.
