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

I went here once and had a good time. It was small but plenty to do. I liked the planetarium, the invisible cloak while pretending to tell weather, the simulation rides.

Don't go in the mornings, they have school field trips and it can get a little crazy. We arrived around 1:30pm and the kids were still there, but they left right after and what a difference that made. My kids loved the place, it is small, have very few things to do, however they had a blast on the flight... More

This place is very small for what it is. If you like movies, you get to see three. We only sat through one as we were getting sleepy. We got to do simulations.... Landings, flying, operatting mars vehicle. Then watched mini videos on the space program.... That was about everything. If the budget is tight I would not recommend ...... More
