Fun place for kids

Great place to take kids when it's too hot outside to play or raining. Lots of fun things for kids to do there. Even fun for adults! Worth a visit if you have never been.

I took my niece here recently and really enjoyed it. We had never been before and the mini zoo and planetarium were a lot of fun. We really had a good time and had plenty tot do for most of the afternoon. She also liked the gift shop a lot and most things were reasonably priced.

I visited this museum with my 12 year old son for the first time recently. The admission price was very reasonable ($10 for adults $5 for kids) and includes everything you can do there (planetarium, mini-zoo, live animal shows, etc), and you can come and go all day. The facility and grounds are very nice, clean, and up-to-date. It has... More

Just a Jim dandy spot. Great science exhibit on nano technology at the time of my visit. The planetarium was well done, and included in the price of admission, Well done. Worth taking the kids for a good learning experience.

One of the bright spots for Macon is the wide range of things our museum contains. An expert friend of mine says some cities with over a million in population do not have a museum as fine as ours. Animals in a walk-through area, hands-on exhibits, a top-notch observatory, local history and archaeology exhibits, and art displays that are updated... More

I like the collection and display of rocks in Georgia, but I especially like the mini zoo they have. The best thing is their planetarium.

Our favorite place was the light room upstairs. The children LOVED it! We also enjoyed the little Sweetgum Trail. This is a pretty good museum for a community of this size -- it's a little tired and worn in places, but mostly well loved.

This museum has a planetarium, gift shop, nature trail, picnic area & rotating exhibits. We recently saw an exhibit about Providence Canyon. It was very interesting. There is a lot to see so bring a lunch & stay from open to close!

I remember going here when I was little so I took my own children there. Interesting exhibits and always some fun event planned (check the website or local paper). If I lived in the area I would get a membership for my kids!

I really enjoyed my visit here. The planetarium was fantastic, there was a small zoo with a couple of different types of animals (mostly amphibian), an interactive area, art gallery, and some walking trails. Due to weather, we had to leave the beautiful trails alone, but I found the planetarium to be fantastic. Great speaker and good shows.The Black Hole... More
