Dracula and a Host of Other Green Ghouls Visit Adventure Science Center

The energy exhibit is sponsored by Green Power Switch®, Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation, and Nashville Electric Service. The 4,000-square-foot interactive exhibit will be in Nashville through October 5.

Classic 1930s Hollywood horror movie characters such as Frankenstein and Wolf Man greet visitors to THE ATOMS FAMILY, introducing them to fundamental energy concepts — the power of the sun, energy conservation, energy transformation, electricity, and fossil fuels. Throughout the exhibit, movie monsters help visitors gain a basic understanding of atomic structure and the role of atoms in matter and energy.

“We want to thank TVA, Middle Tennessee Electric, and NES for partnering together to help support and promote this interactive and innovative learning experience for our summer Adventure Science Center visitors,” said Amy Vineyard, director of marketing for the Adventure Science Center. “The center is excited about the opportunity to help promote renewable energy. In fact, the Adventure Science Center is home to the first of Green Power Switch’s 15 solar sites.” Admission, which includes entrance to THE ATOMS FAMILY exhibition, is $7.95 for adults and $5.95 for children ages 3 to 12 and seniors age 65 or older. The Adventure Science Center, formerly the Cumberland Science Museum, is located at 800 Fort Negley Blvd. For more information, call (615) 862-5160 or visit our Web site at
