The purpose of Georgia's Museum of Arts and Sciences is to acquire, preserver, interpret and exhibit a number of objects that showcase the artistic, scientific, historic and cultural value and significance to the people of Central Georgia.
What does that mean? Well, that means this popular museum is filled with exhibits that showcase the rich history of the region, and educate all who visit on humankind, it's heritage and environment!
Within the Museum of Arts & Sciences, there are permanent exhibits, as well as temporary exhibits, that cover fine arts, geology, history and even outer space!
The Discover House is great for kids, as there are three floors of interactive exhibits that explore arts, science and humanities. Families who visit can create their own works of art with simple supplies, or explore collections on butterflies, arrowheads, dolls and much more!
In the basement, the Scientist's Workshop allows kids and parents to communicate through whisper tubes, dig up fossils, figure out how things work, and see an installation of a 40-million year old whale fossil!
Let's not forget that you can have an out of this world experience at the museum's planetarium! Explore the night sky through the lens of a telescope, or check out the many Observatory events that are held throughout the year - that are FREE! (although donations appreciated)
