What is there to do?

A visit to the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Georgia is like a trip around the world (and you don't even have to leave the state!)

This family friendly museum is where you can explore wonderful works of fine art, then observe animals that live in tropical forests.

Kids can immerse themselves in the cultures of different civilizations, and even explore the wonders of outer space - all in the one day!

The Discovery House exhibit features three whole floors of interactive exhibits that explore the arts, science and humanities.

On the top floor, kids can enjoy hands-on fun as they create their own works of art, or they might want to just sit quietly and listen to the sounds around them in the Dream Room!

The Humanist's Study takes you on a journey of human history, with collections featuring butterflies, arrowheads, dolls and much more, and the Scientist's Workshop is where kids can experiment and learn until their heart's content!

In this workshop, science is made fun as they communicate through whisper tubes, and unravel how things work at the workbenches, or they might prefer to dig for fossils in the Ziggy Dig, which is right below a 40 million year old whale fossil!

If you want even more fun exploring, look for the constellations in the night sky on the sky map, and learn the rules of gravity!

You can also enjoy a WILD time at the Mini Zoo that's centered around a replica Banyan Tree. Here, you can see a live show featuring real animals, learn all about the animal collection AND see over 70 actual animals too!
