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.

Great place..went during the Christmas Tree show. Liked the live animals. Planetarium show put my husband the sleep 😳. The narrator had a hypnotic effect. I only wish they had better postcards. 😀 I would've loved to have take some of the Van Gogh items home but some were a bit pricey. Oh well. I will go back.
I loved going here today with my family! There really is a lot to do and see. Many of the attractions are interactive so they will hold the attention of children of all ages. The prices were extremely fair, even for current students. The staff was especially helpful and courteous. We were visiting from out of town, but if we are every in the Macon area again, we will be sure to visit. Wonderfully fun and informative time for all ages!
Wow - what a gem in Macon for families to enjoy!!! We were visiting my family in central Georgia and met here on a rainy Sunday. I wish we had something this nice in Atlanta, although it would definitely be more expensive and crowded! The kids museum area was impressive - very clean and updated. There were lots of hands-on exhibits for the little ones to enjoy. We LOVED the mini-zoo and the animal presentation was so fun and educational. I wish I could remember the young zookeeper's name - he did a great job in the show!! All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. The planetarium was also entertaining. We easily spent over 3 hours and prob would have stayed longer had we brought snacks :) This would be a great place for a birthday party!
Great place for families! Good price and good entertainment!
I went with my daughters school for her field trip So many rude people who work there especially Amanda Vining they need kid friendly people who love their job!
