Great place to visit for people of all ages. Many interactive and informative displays. Very modest entrance fee. We especially enjoyed the show in the planetarium. Staff was helpful and courteous. The fighter jet simulators alone are worth the trip. (I'm afraid I would make a very poor pilot). We spent about 2 hours there, and could have profitably spent... More

Great place for entertainment and education. My son has begged to go numerous times. We also enjoyed having a birthday party for him there several years ago and he has enjoyed day camps there.

It was pretty fun, and I suggest you bring your kids along with you. Its a fun opportunity for your kids and it has a lot of intellectual values as well.

We went two times over the summer break and LOVED it. There are several activities to do, and I learned so much. My 8 yo daughter had a blast, especially in the 3D theatre. Definitely recommend as a family trip!

Small museum mostly aimed at kids but the NASA artifacts and 360 Dome Theatre make it enjoyable for adults as well.

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

This isn't a big museum but the kids 10,12 really enjoyed. I was bored but they liked the different exhibits. We all enjoyed the film in the planetarium. Great price and I also found coupons on groupon.
