The Avampato Discovery Museum is one of those places where science and art come together in a rare combination. It is housed in the Clay Center for Arts and Sciences in Charleston, South Carolina and is accredited by the American Association of Museums.

Originally called the Sunrise Museum at South Hills, the museum relocated to the present Clay Center in June 2004 and took the name, Avampato Discovery Museum.

The museum features two floors of interactive science exhibits, and an art gallery with more than 9,000 square feet of permanent — mostly U.S. art — and traveling exhibitions.

Its Electric Sky Theater regularly screens planetarium shows, large-format films, and laser shows. The museum also hosts school and group tours as well as special events.

The museum gift shop has books, miniature science models, and other collectables for sale. The Avampato Discovery Museum is barrier free.
