Got $5 admission with miltary ID. 1 yr old and 3 yr old got in free. Sat through the planetarium show and it was really cool. Loved the exhibits. Had a great time with 6 adults and 2 children.

This is very much a museum dedicate D to children. It was small. Many of the displays did it work. The space program was told in great detail with lots of pictures and story boards. As an adult who's been to NASA locations in Florida and Texas, I found this museum boring.

I've been here before 6 months ago. Have added new cool stuff for the kids to play on. Great little gift shop to buy cool stuff (like astronaut ice cream and strawberries) Planetarum show was cool. And the kids love flying the little moving space ships that are free with admission. If your in Columbus or fort Benning this is... More

When visiting Columbus, Ga., the Coca-Cola Space Science Center is a "must stop & see". Located in the Historic Section of the city, come learn about the history of coca-cola and science at the same time.

Went with a group of students on a field trip. I would say that it is worth the visit overall if your kids are interested in this sort of thing. Educational and fun!

We had a great time here at the Coca Cola Space Science Centre. Eric, on the front desk, was very helpful and made every effort to ensure we had a good experience -even down to offering recommendations for somewhere to go for lunch. We both tried out the simulators -great fun. The theatre presentations were good. Also had a sneak... More

Went to this museum with Cub Scout Pack 420 from Duluth, GA. A bit smaller than expected, but fun none the less. The four linked fighter jet simulators were a hug hit with the boys, girls and parents. All the hands-on stuff was in use the entire visit. Only expect to spend a few hours here since as mentioned earlier,... More

Great place to visit for people of all ages. Many interactive and informative displays. Very modest entrance fee. We especially enjoyed the show in the planetarium. Staff was helpful and courteous. The fighter jet simulators alone are worth the trip. (I'm afraid I would make a very poor pilot). We spent about 2 hours there, and could have profitably spent... More
