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.

A spacious, roomy art gallery, the Cici and Hyatt Brown Art Museum has recently been constructed on the grounds of the Museum of Arts and Sciences. I was surprised to see how many paintings there were so that only a fraction of them could be covered by our tour director. I definitely have to return for another visit to see... More

A place we always bring family and friends visiting us in Florida. This place is a one of a kind art gallery with historical art work that is simply beautiful. The Museum has several separate features that are magnificent. Plan to spend the day here. Plenty of parking and worth the cost of admission. see both the art gallery and... More

I was impressed that somebody collected so many work of art with motifs from Florida. Nice architecture and pleasant place to skip the Beach.

My family and I have been visiting the Ormond/Daytona area for years and as kids my wife and grew up here. That being said, I cannot believe this is the first time we have gone to the MOAS. It truly is a diamond in the rough. Awesome planetarium shows, attractive displays, and a fun hands-on children's museum. If you are... More

This is a beautiful museum with 12 different galleries with exhibits ranging from Cuban to Teddy Bears. It is only $12.95 which includes a Planetarium show. There is a 90-acre nature preserve (but too hot for us the day we were there). Hint: Outside the Planetarium there are several works of art...be sure to get the 3D glasses (near the... More

While spending a week in Daytona with our kids (8 and 6), I'm always looking for things to do for a few hours while our slight sunburns heal. :) We decided to try this museum and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a little bit of everything: Part art museum with some really amazing work and local collections; a large... More

My family and I vacation in Daytona every year, and this is an annual visit as well. It is a quiet place to get away from the noise of the beach and the crowds. My daughters love the teddy bear displays, and I love the large collection of Coke machines. This is fairly inexpensive, and there is also a great... More

Since I am into trains, this place was a highlight. The Milwaukee Road Hiawatha Beaver Tail car is the last one left of only four produced. This is a must for train buffs

Went through and saw all the cool art and the huge SLOTH. Then went to the kids museum which my son loved so much it was hard to get him to leave. They also have shows in the planetarium and we saw one on the planets.

Visiting the Cuban Art gallery allows you to take advantage of a unique collection not offered by other museums. I have visited twice for lectures which were highly interesting and a welcome addition to MOAS. This visit was my first of The Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art. The docent's tour was outstanding for I left feeling as if... More
