One such place is the Adventure Science Center. Made especially for the science geeks, the center is a scientific museum that shows everything about the subject. In here, you can find a flight simulator for those who have dreams of flying the skies. It also features a planetarium, which opened recently this year, where you can view displays about the nine different planets of our solar system. The center is located on a hill so, aside from the treats the center has to offer, you also get to enjoy a good view of the entire city of Nashville from a high vantage point. The center is open Monday until Saturdays from 10 am until 5 pm, and on Sundays from 12:30 in the afternoon until 5:30. Admission will cost you US$9.
A feel of Civil War history wouldn’t hurt, if you decide to visit the “queen of Tennessee plantations” or formally known as the Belle Meade Plantation. Set in the middle of a 5,300-acre estate, the main attraction in the plantation is a Greek Revival mansion. In the mansion, you can see holes made by bullets from the guns of clashing Union and Confederate forces during the Civil War. The mansion is not the only attraction you will find in the plantation, which was once a premier breeding farm for thoroughbred horses during its day. You can also witness the Iroquois Steeplechase held yearly in May in the nearby Percy Warner Park within the estate itself. You can visit a Victorian carriage museum in the plantation as well. If you feel hungry, you can eat at the Martha’s at the Plantation restaurant inside the estate itself. Admission costs US$14, and the plantation is open for visits from 9 am until 5 pm on Mondays until Saturdays, while you can visit the plantation from 11 am until 5 pm during Sundays.
Tennessee is the undisputed home of country music. It is only fitting that the Country Hall Music of Fame and Museum can be found in the state. In this museum, you get to enjoy an exhibit of the many gold and platinum country records throughout the years as well as a digital film encompassing the history of the industry. You can even find Elvis Presley’s 1960 cadillac limo noted for its solid-gold body. Admission is US$17.95.
