The Museum of Arts and Sciences is proud to display Voyage Around the World, an exhibition of award-winning model ships built by Ronald Wetmore, through September 7, 2014.
The hand-built scale models—tall sailing ships, a riverboat, and an infamous passenger liner—are of ships that charted important historical voyages, battles, and/or tragedies.
With great fanfare during the “Grand Reopening” celebrations, the Museum of Arts and Sciences relaunched its distinctive Discovery House, the interactive museum for children, which offers new excitement for Kids of All Ages!
The area was closed for almost three months while new exhibits were being installed and existing stations updated.
Visitors are greeted at the entrance by Ziggy, the Museum’s 40 million-year-old whale fossil, and the “Gesturing Woman” by Viola Frey, scholar and artist known for her larger-than-life, colorfully glazed clay sculptures.
Once you’re past Ziggy, “Gesturing Woman,” and the Polar Bear in the main floor’s Parlor, a ride on the elevator opens up entirely new experiences.
Mayor Robert Reichert has proposed his FY2015 Macon-Bibb County budget, which eliminates all funding for the Museum of Arts and Sciences effective July 1, 2014. If approved by the Commissioners, entire sections of the Museum will be closed and major programs will be eliminated.

The Human Gyroscope in the Museum’s lobby is just one of the many new interactive exhibits the Museum of Arts and Sciences acquired recently from the former Fort Discovery National Science Center in Augusta. Recently purchased from the National Science Foundation, the Human Gyroscope is a fun and exhilarating immersive experience that gives riders a sense of weightlessness.
Opened in conjunction with and in celebration of Georgia’s 2nd Annual “Careers in Energy Week” was an exploration that demonstrated how energy makes change possible.
SPARKS: Understanding Energy, an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, explored many forms of energy with special emphasis on the science of electricity. The exhibition included demonstrations of radiant, thermal, gravitational, mechanical, chemical and electrical energy for visitors of all ages.
