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

My husband, grown son, and I were in Georgia for our younger son's graduation at Fort Benning and were looking for something to do. We stopped in here, not realizing it was basically for very young children. It was a waste of our money, Didn't really seem like there was much to do even for children.

First let me say that we at Rancho de Musclechest are huge fans of kitsch, kid museums, and space. In spite of the fact that this place has all three in spades, my expectations were not particularly high. Perhaps it was the discouraging words from Grammy Old Lady, who said my progeny would be bored. Perhaps it was the fact... More

I've been here twice. First time there wasn't that much to do. There were some rides and a few other kiddish activities. Now there's a LOT more to do. There is a planetarium which offers a show about space, astronauts etc. and a few more fun things. There is also a gift shop which is a little small, but still... More
