Advance ticket purchase is now required for this event. We have been watching the Davidson County COVID-19 Dashboard via ASafeNashville.org and are aware of the rise in active COVID-19 cases. As a result, we have decided to reduce the capacity of our Happy Noon Year event this Friday, December 31st from 10 am to 1 pm and will require advanced ticket purchase. Walk-up ticket purchases for the event will not be permitted in order to help us safely maintain the capacity that best allows for proper social distancing.
We are also strongly encouraging all visitors and staff to mask, regardless of vaccination status. If you or your children are not able to receive the vaccine/booster or comfortably wear an appropriate face covering, we ask that you not visit the science center at this time. Getting tested for COVID-19 before visiting friends and/or family or public places is another effective measure to help slow the spread.
We are dedicated to providing a fun and safe experience and appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Here’s to hoping for a better new year!
We made it to 2022!
Our annual, sell-out New Year's celebration is just around the corner. Can you believe it? Join us for a morning of games, activities, experiments, and more all leading up to our New Year's Eve "ball drop" at 12:00 pm (noon). Festivities will begin at 10:00 am and end at 1:00 pm, but the science center will remain open until 6:00 pm. It's a kid-friendly party that gets everyone to bed on time.
