Just to enliten the older visitors-this place is for kids. But it's a great hands on learning adventure for children under the age of 12-14.

This was my first trip to the museum. It is very much geared toward young kids. The dresses were neat. It was not busy at all. Hopefully exhibits will be geared toward more adults.

I took my wife and grandson on to tour the museum back in July. the place offered a lot of interesting exhibits, art, science and a Planetarium & Observatory. Definitely worth the time and meager entrance fee.

This place was kept with lots of hands-on activities for kids to do. The entry cost includes the planetarium show and animal show and even the gyroscope ride. Best place to spend time with your kids in the Macon area
