I like the quaint little feel of the museum, Really loved the planetarium show, the kids loved it an the temp in there was just right for a quick nap in the dark under the stars, in the comfy reclining seats. Kids said it was awesome and they are 12 and 13. Husband was able to see the Titanaboa exhibit that me and the daughter saw at the Smithsonian a couple of years ago on a school D.C. trip. Over all, it was a unique memorable experience that brought back memories for me as I grew up in Macon and visited the same planetarium as a kid myself :).

Great place to visit on a hot summer afternoon. Live animals and science experiments for kids. The planetarium is very nice and modern. Also on Fridays they open the observatory, so kids can look through telescopes to see different planets and stars. From Venus to Saturn depending on the time of year.

They also have art and science exhibits year round.

Fantastic summer camp for younger kids.

Great way to spend 2-3 hours in the air-conditioning!! Definitely take advantage of the live animal show (excellent, engaging presenter - cockatoo, snake, etc) and the planetarium show: makes the price seem much more reasonable.

We like to go on rainy weekends. They always have different exhibits every time we go. Fun education for the kids!
