  • This was my first trip to the museum. It is very much geared toward young kids. The dresses were neat. It was not busy at all. Hopefully exhibits will be geared toward more adults.  more »

  • 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!
  • Very easy to get to. Staff was excellent and helpful. Will be back to see the rest of the exhibits.
  • Excellent museum! Great venue for various events and unbelievable observatory.
  • Great place for the kids ( my kids loved it despite the rudeness I saw from the staff) but staff was actually rather rude. Could have easily had five stars if the staff had been more polite.
