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

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.
