Momentum Science and Health Adventure ~ Pack Place ~ Asheville NC

While exploring the Pack Place Education, Arts and Science Center in historic downtown Asheville, we could not help but pop into The Health Adventure.  In the front window, a cheery looking skeleton riding a bicycle had clocked over 60 miles for the day, when we walked by and his cheery bike adventure beckoned us in.

We had to take a quick gander of this ultra modern museum, since it is a fun place to take kids while exploring downtown Asheville! This goes under the "history of our bodies" so it fits beautifully in LivingHistorySites..com, since we are all living! 

Tons of displays are throughout The Health Adventure, chronicling every part of the body. Displays on food, digestion, the senses, skeleton, brain, and more were throughout. Fun and interactive games, exhibits and displays were in every nook and corner of the museum. Kids could spend hours there have a grand adventure and learning about their own bodies! 

The employees were excited about the new plans. They have already broken ground, and it will soon move across town and be Momentum Science and Health Adventure Park in a new 39,000 square foot facility full of the great exhibits that make Health Adventure so fun, but also featuring healthy food, classrooms, amphitheater, gardens, and more.

The Momentum Health Adventure Museum is in downtown Asheville, and near the Botanical Garden, Civil War Battle of Asheville, Asheville Art Museum, Colburn Earth Science Museum, The Grove Arcade, and the Early Girl Eatery and City Bakery Cafe
