Science Centers in Georgia

Look up at the stars or look down beneath the sea. Whichever direction you glance, these science centers in Georgia help you look towards the future. The Coca-Cola Space Science Center is a highlight of any visit to central Georgia and Columbus. The programs focus on space science, physics, and astronomy. Visit the exhibits and take in a space show in their theater. The collection includes NASA artifacts like a space shuttle engine nozzle that's been in space nine times.

The ocean's depths can be as mysterious as the night sky. Lessen the mystery with a visit to the Tybee Island Marine Science Center near Savannah in coastal Georgia. Enjoy a guided, informative stroll on the beach; explore the gallery which includes live creatures like snakes, alligators, and crabs; watch the resident turtle chow down on lunch; or get wet while you pull a net in the Sift & Seine program to catch and release marine animals.
