The museum’s goal is to spark curiosity and foster a deep appreciation for the sciences and the natural beauty of western North Carolina. Environmental stewardship starts with education. AMOS’ French Broad River exhibit will offer a one of a kind interactive learning experience to the public. We thank Duke Energy for its support and are eager to launch this project allowing visitors to learn about the importance of this waterway, in the WNC ecosystem.
