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

My wife and I visited over the Labor Day weekend. We knew nothing about the museum, but went anyway. It's a fun place. There are some wonderful temporary exhibits (holograms, model ships) and some other permanent exhibits. A bit of art, a bit of science. The planetarium was high quality. I can see that there are also some innovative activities... More

Took my twin nine year old grandsons to the Macon Art and Science Museum and we all had a great time. Many interactive exhibits, art, animals, and a gyro that you ride. They have a senior rate of $8 and kids were only $5 each. Museum held the kids interest and they actually learned something. We plan on returning one... More

My children age 7 and 10 loved the Museum of Arts and Sciences! The exhibit at the time was The Black Hole so there was a lot for children to do and see! I myself.... got motion sickness from the Planetarium so that is something not to see if you are easily bothered by motion sickness! lol

I remember going to the Museum when I was in elementary school. I thought it would be a good experience for my niece (age 5) and it was! She loved it and wants to go back. I read that funding from the city will probably be cut and thus some of the programs will be closed. This would be a... More

My husband and I drove from Atlanta to see this Museum of Arts and Sciences for something interesting to do. What we read online was that it was the largest museum in Georgia. Perhaps we came at the wrong time or something, but there was no one around in any of the exhibit areas to give a live tour or... More
