I highly recommend this museum for the whole family. Very interactive for the kids. Also several interesting exhibits for the adults. The planetarium show was also great fun. Well worth the price of membership to make return trips.

We planned to visit this museum for the Rock and Gem fest and everyone was really great. We got there early and they let us park and wait. We have FL handicap veteran plates and they let us use their handicap parking. We enjoyed everything there, even the bingo for the kids! Loved the displays and layout. Even happy with... More

Great Panetarium shows. Favorite attraction for our family was panning for gems in the sand/water trough. Some nice little keepsakes to take home.

What a great museum. We got tickets from my middle school'son field trip that was cancelled due to the weather and decided to go on spring break. I will pay to go there again and take people with me. It's a great museum, so much to see and learn. Nice planetarium and fun for young kids too. Plan to spend... More

We love 5 star reviews! Thank you so much! We know many of the students and parents were disappointed when the museum and schools were closed due to the snow storms in Atlanta, so we are especially glad to hear that some of you were able to come using the guest passes we provided. We can't wait to visit with... More

The Tellus Museum has a LOT to offer! An aviation exhibit, a dinosaur exhibit, a mineral exhibit, a chemical exhibit, a mining exhibit, a natural forces/weather exhibit, and special events throughout the year (Please check their calendar for the planetarium shows and also their "Night at the Museum". It is well worth the trip!) We went there to participate in... More

We stopped here on a trip coming back from Chattanooga. My son loved the dinosaurs and huge trucks they have on display. All in all, there is something for everyone here.

We found the Tellus museum in Jan 2012 on our first trip to Atlanta. It's not a huge museum, but they have some interesting exhibits. There are great old planes and cars. There's a great hands on room, with cool science experiments for the kids to touch and play with. They also have a great dinosaur exhibit. However, it's the... More

This museum is relatively new and continuing to upgrade and introduce new things. The planetarium was recently upgraded with state-of-the-art computerized technology and a traveling exhibit hall has been added. There are 4 halls now: dinosaurs, minerals, transportation and a wonderful hands-on children's area. In addition to the exhibits there are always lunch and learns, visiting lecturers (including astronauts), a... More

If you are going to be traveling on I-75 North from Atlanta or South from Chattanooga you might want to consider a stop at Tellus Museum, Observatory and Planetarium just off the freeway in Cartersville Ga. I had previously visited and found it to be a great Museum, just didn't get around to writing about it. Early, 1 AM to... More

This is a great place for the whole family. There is so much to see and do for every age. Movies and themes change from time to time. Very interesting. A must if you are traveling through Cartersville. Right off of I-75. Don't miss it.
