What is there to do?

Science is SO much fun to explore and learn about, and at Tellus Science Museum, kids and adults alike have over 120,000 sq ft of permanent exhibits, hands-on science activities, and even planetarium shows to show you exactly why science is so great!

Tellus Science Museum features galleries devoted to a whole range of topics, from minerals, fossils, technology, and and yes, dinosaurs!

The Weinman Mineral Gallery shows kids how the Earth was formed billions of years ago, as the family walks among hundreds of beautiful gems and minerals, including some of Georgia's most prized minerals!

We mentioned dinosaurs, and we weren't kidding! Kids can stare into the mouth of a real life T-Rex, catch a glimpse of a saber-tooth cat, come face to face with a 9ft wide Megaladon jaw, and discover how life on earth began all those millions of years ago.

The Millar Science in Motion exhibit propels families through 100 years of changes in transportation technology, from the early changes in automobile manufacturing, vintage vehicles, and even the moon landing!

The world of science is every kid's playground in My Big Backyard, where a wonderland of imaginative fun is waiting, where rainbows, mirrors, light and so much more await!

The Tellus Science Museum features a Solar House, teaching all about renewable energy, and kids can even dig for fossils and pan for gems in hands-on fun!

Let's not forget about the Planetarium, where an out of this world experience is waiting as you take a seat, lean back and explore the solar system and galaxies through a state of the art projector. 

Science IS fun, and you get a front row seat on your next visit to Tellus Science Museum! It's time to get excited about what you will discover!

I’m Hungry!

If a day at Tellus leaves you hungry, there are hamburgers, hot dogs, soup and salads all made to order.
