The Museum presents art ranging from modern masterpieces to recent works by young, emerging artists. The Museum’s permanent collection—acquired over 55+ years—reveals a focus on art by Southern painters, Georgia folk pottery and contemporary traditions, and gifts to the Museum by regional collectors.
The Museum provides attractive, accessible, interesting, entertaining and educational programming about science, scientists, and the processes and outcomes of scientific exploration. The Museum engages the community with its planetarium, observatory, mini-zoo, interactive displays, and more.
The Museum supports the traditions of cultural literacy, critical inquiry, and civic engagement. The Museum connects to visitors of all ages through its exhibitions, special events, classes and hands-on activities, while telling the story of the region and its history, philosophy, religion, literature, and art.
