My kids made several visits to the Science Center but I had never been. I am glad I took time to swing by one day for a quick visit and I was impressed. Columbus is fairly small but features like the Science Center help make sure we don't feel left out. A great facility and area of interest for the... More

This has our second visit to the Coca-cola space science center. The first time was for a Starwars convention. This time we were killing time while in columbus. If you have gone to NASA in Houston or Cape Canaveral you will be disappointed.

We came to Columbus to see our son graduate from Fort Benning, we came home with some historic knowledge. We visited the Center with 3 teenagers and they were fascinated with the star movie and the little rocket rides. They had a blast.

everything is designed for children under the age of 13. Good displays and interactive games just not for the older group I took.

There is nothing much inside this museum and the same was advised even by some local people, so there is no need to waste time to go and check it from inside. This is the place where the Coke started and later on the production moved to Atlanta, so it is good historic site just for some photo shoot to... More

Very disappointing. My boys were disappointed that there wasn't much at the museum. Saw 2 movies. Neither was very interesting to my elementary aged boys. Do not plan on returning.

This place was small but there was something to do for everyone no matter their age. The staff was friendly and answered any questions we had. There were several families here the day we visited so the staff gave a guided tour to all of us. The gift shop was a small and there was nothing much in there.

This is a small museum next to the convention center. It is geared more toward children, but adults would enjoy it too. There are several films that show the "wonders of the world". This is more in line with a planetarium.

The employs are nice, helpful full of knowledge. I am guessing the dog fight flight simulators are something from the late 80's. They have a Mars rover area that you get to drive small robots. The robots are small RC tractors you could at the dollar store. The rocket engine at the front is cool because it's from a real... More
