We were in town for boot camp graduation and were just looking for something to take up time. There were a few field trips in there while we were there and the place is rather small. It has some cool exhibits for kids like games but with us all being adults it was pretty flat and only took like 30... More

The museum was ok. Smaller than I thought. The theater part was the best! There was a few exhibits that where cool. But I still preferred the theater part.

On a blazing hot Georgia day, this is the perfect (albeit short) visit to make. Totally worth it to see a show at the planetarium (we took our 8 month old daughter to the Sesame Street showing and she loved it), they have a variety of shows that play hourly. As for the actual science center....it's got some neat artifacts... More

It's all about space. What kid wouldn't enjoy learning about that? There is a planetarium inside with interesting shows that change often. The building is not very large but is a cool place to visit with young kids.

We are so glad we stopped into the Columbus Georgia Space Museum funded by Coca Cola. On a very hot day we got to relax in the air-conditioned Sky show about the planets. The show was made for kids but we learned a few things too and with lots of kids there I think it did a lot of good.... More

It's not a big place, but it had plenty of interesting things to look at. The planetarium was pretty good. They have a decent program in conjunction with Columbus State for those interested in exploring the stars. We will visit again.

We have been several times only because there isn't much to do here. For what you get,it is not a good value. Not much to see or do here. We thought our child would love it but within ten to fifteen minutes she is always ready to leave.

I visited this museum with my children. They really enjoyed. It was very educational . They did picked up on a lot of information. However, it is a bit small and not a whole lot to do. But, if u stay and watch the two movies that are played in the planetarium you definitely will spend a few hours there.... More

This is great museum for kids under the age of 11 older than that they would not be interested. My son and I visited during his family weekend and we were not impressed. The surrounding area with the park and homes was nice to take a tour around.
