This museum is really just ok. We did enjoy seeing the two trains, the cocoa cola exhibit and the antique cars. The planetarium is good. Overall rating: Just ok.

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.

Museum has a large collection of Coke memorabilia. There are two passenger train cars from the 50's or so. Really cool to look inside and see how people traveled in luxury. The art collection was nice but not spectacular as was their various pieces of furniture and other collections. Planetarium has a variety of presentations. The one we saw was... More

It's a decent small museum with some fun exhibits and a nice nature walk on the premises. Don't expect much and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the different elements within.

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
