The Museum of Arts and Sciences had very humble origins, when it was started in 1956 is a small room located inside a conservatory. The museum, as we know it today, was shifted to its present location in 1964. From a small room, the community museum now consists of 4 expansive galleries, Mark Smith Planetarium, a Discovery House, garden, nature trail and many more fun and exciting activities to be pursued. Exciting new exhibitions are added regularly and efforts to make the existing one more interactive, fun and educational at the same time are made constantly.

Museum Of Arts And Sciences Reviews & Ratings
The Museum of Arts and Sciences is a primary attraction of Middle Georgia. My father brought me here regularly as a child. I have very fond memories of the animal show and Planetarium. I kept meaning to bring my children but it is a little far from us, so I put it off. It took a field trip through their virtual school for me to finally bring them. So much has improved! The Discovery House and the Nature Trail especially, and I hear even more are in the works! They did an excellent job of tailoring tours to our large group, and all of the children seemed to be having a great time. My children loved the animal show and Planetarium as well, though my little one fell asleep. She needed a nap after all of the excitement! We will have to come back regularly on our own!
Decent place. We traveled 1 1/2 hours each way for the purpose of visiting the planetarium. Guess what? It was broken. It's worth a visit but the nearby Air Force Museum is nicer.
Great for all ages, mostly aimed towards kids but there's still a lot to see and learn. Planetarium is okay but needs upgrading to be a little more modern. The projections were a little fuzzy and the animation they played after the constellations show was clearly a little dated in the way it looked.
We’ve always enjoyed coming to the Arts and Science museum, until today. We’ve brought our son since he was a year old, never had any issues. Today is my daughter’s first birthday and her big brother wanted to “take her to outer space” at the planetarium. Knowing this to be an establishment specifically for children and learning, we were excited to have a fun family day. When we walked in and we paid our money to be there, the lady at the front desk told us about the planetarium show at 11:30, never once saying anything about babies or strollers. We took our seats inside of the planetarium before the show started, I was feeding my daughter a bottle and she was on the verge of falling asleep in the dark room. The man doing the presentation walked past us many times, and had MULTIPLE opportunities to quietly pull us aside and express his concerns about having our one year old with us. But no, instead he waited, and singled our family out over the microphone continuously until my husband couldn’t take any more. Then he says he’s “worried about crackers getting on the floor”.... she has no teeth! No one was eating crackers. The way he handled the situation was completely uncalled for, absolutely ridiculous, and some may even say humiliating. We will never step foot inside of this place again, and we will be sure to let everyone else know about the way we were treated. This is the experience we get to remember for our baby girl’s first birthday. Thanks! You may want to have a training session on professionalism.
A great museum for kids as well as adults. A must stop in Macon. Parking could use some shade.
