About this activity

Tellus Science Museum is an experience, not just a destination, because this HUGE Georgia attraction features over 120,000 sq ft of exhibits covering everything you could want to know about our planet (and more) in a scientific capacity.

The permanent exhibits feature a wealth of topics, from minerals, fossils, technology, and hands-on science experiences for those curious kids!

Shall we explore?

Have you ever stared into the mouth of a T-Rex, or caught a glimpse of a saber-tooth tiger car? At the Tellus Fossil Gallery, you can! Here you can discover how life on Earth started as you explore millions of years of history learning about dinosaurs, and giant mammals that dominated the planet before us!

What's also fun is following up your fossil experience with a visit to their Fossil Dig!

The Science In Motion gallery uncovers 100 years of transportation history, from the early days of vintage cars to man rocketing into space. There is even a replica of the Apollo 1 capsule among others!

Discover what lies beneath our feet in the Weinman Mineral Gallery, with more than 50 cases filled with gems, gold, and precious minerals, and make sure you see the world in a different light in the fluorescent mineral room!

Kids can enjoy a wonderland of imagination in the Big Backyard exhibit, where kids can play with light, rainbows, mirrors, and so much more in the greenhouse, and even experiment with sound!

Also at Tellus Science Museum is Bentley Planetarium, where you are taken on a journey through the solar system and beyond with their digital projector. Great for all ages and only a small extra cost on your admission.

A day of exploration, prehistoric fun, wonders of geology and SO much more, so kids, what are you waiting for - the Tellus Science Museum is ready and waiting for you to discover science IS fun!
