About this activity

Discover the world and explore the universe at the Museum of Arts and Sciences! Learn about our observable universe, practice being an archeologist, view works of fine art, learn about different kinds of animals and MORE all in 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 and create digital art dancing in our lightbox! 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!

Explore our observable universe and watch immersive fulldome films in our state-of-the-art Planetarium.

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 40 actual animals too!

Walk our Sweetgum Trail to see outdoor art (including our Star of Wonder), a writer's cabin, and native plants and wildlife that call the MAS grounds their home. Be sure to walk behind the Museum to see our Bat Cave, housing 8 African Straw-Colored Fruit Bats, our Critter Courtyard featuring our Black Vulture, and other non-releasable birds of prey in our Raptor Retreat. 

There are so many things to do in one day at the MAS! Will you do them all?
