The Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS) is the primary art, history and science museum in Central Florida. Located on a 90-acre Florida nature preserve, the 100,000 square foot facility is host to over 30,000 objects including the finest collection of American Art in the southeast, the largest collection of Cuban art outside of Cuba, a significant Chinese art collection, and Florida's prehistoric Giant Ground Sloth - the most complete and best preserved of its species. Also on display, is Coca-Cola entrepreneur Chapman Root’s lifetime collection of Americana, including two private rail cars. The museum’s theater, planetarium, and Charles and Linda Williams Children's Museum make for a truly interactive experience.

I have been to this museum several times and never get tired of it. They have a fantastic exhibit on Coca Cola memorabilia and an awesome Teddy Bear collection. There are paintings to view, antique furniture, cars and race cars, and a huge prehistoric sloth. There is also an antique train car exhibit. It's not a huge museum but there... More

Stopped here on a Friday after checking out of our hotel. There are some pretty interested exhibits! My kids really enjoyed the planetarium show and Experiment! area. Not crowded, which we quite enjoyed.

The Children's Museum is a must visit for kids. The treasure of the museum is MR. Z , the Summer Camp program, the Homeschool classes and other children programs. A fantastic resource for kids.

We visited the Museum with company on a rainy day. The MOAS offered a wide variety of interests for all. The evolution of Coca Cola was nostalgic! The children's area had many interactive exhibits for our granddaughter. We also attended the Planetarium Show. Fun was had by all!

Good collection of art for the size of Daytona. I'm looking forward to visiting again now that the expansion project is completed. Nice kids section for those that have little ones.

If you have never been to MOAS, please do yourself a favor and check it out. I am a member of the museum. It's worth it because you get reciprocal admission to other museums across the country. If you have small children, you should go too. First, they have some really wonderful exhibits for adults. Some rotate, so check their... More

My family and I went to this museum due to having nothing else to do and were met with unkept grounds, broken wooden walkways, boring "exhibits", and lack of regard for the environment surrounding it. //I highly recommend saving your money.
