Colburn Earth Science Museum Rebranded as "Asheville Museum of Science": Soft Opening November 11th

Many of our readers have probably visited the Colburn Earth Science Museum in Asheville. This museum has existed in some form since 1960! The legacy of engineer and bank president Burnham Standish Colburn, the founder of the museum, will continue in the Colburn Hall of Minerals as a part of the new Asheville Museum of Science. This is an exciting addition to North Carolina's nonformal science and environmental education center community. Please watch the video below for a virtual tour with Executive Director Anna Priest. This place looks amazing! 

AMOS has many events planned in advance of their opening. For updates, follow them on Facebook: and for now they are still using the website.
