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

The planitarium show was informative and had a cute cartoon for the children to learn with. The global presentations were very informative also.

This is a nice little museum to take the kids. There are live animal exhibits, science exhibits, and a planetarium among other things. Good way to spend a couple of hours out of the heat.

I really enjoyed the planetarium. The other exhibits were very nice as well. I attended this museum as part of a conference. The drive from town was nice as well as we passed some historic sites.

Stuck in GA due to accident & decided to visit here. Lots of activities for kids, as an older Adult (who has been to many museums) there really wasn't much to see. I will say it is very nice for a medium town. Not something...More

Went with friend who was visiting from out of town as there really wasn't too much going on. This place was small but surprisingly fun. Spun around in gyroscope thing which was good but planetarium was the bomb. So serene. Best nap in years.
