Health Adventure (The)
Kid boredom has a cure: it is The Health Adventure located at Pack Place right in the heart of Asheville. Exhibits, science camps, and much more, The Health Adventure strives to combine fun and learning for kids of all ages. Group visits are welcome and can be scheduled by calling the main office.
See it once with the kids, then go back about a year later. Certain special exhibits change, but much of the museum stays the same. It is well worth spending a morning there. Learn about nutrition, physics, and all sorts of health and science topics. This is a fairly small museum, but with an inquisitive child or two, you can easily spend two hours.
There are restaurants within a few blocks, such as Barley's (pizza), The Noodle Shop, Salsa, and several others. Marble Slab (ice cream) is nearby also.
The Health Adventure is in the same building as a Gem & Mineral Museum and an Art Museum. You can spend a morning with the kids just staying in this area; you can have a lot of fun and learn something as well.
