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.
“Cherry Blossom Festival Day at the Museum”
The Museum of Arts and Sciences announces that it will host its 2nd Annual “Cherry Blossom Festival Day at the Museum,” which promises an exciting day of fun activities for everyone in the entire family, on April 1, 2014 between 10 am and 4 pm.
This year the Museum joins the War Against Hunger by conducting its very own one-day special effort to fight hunger!

The Museum Guild presents the 19th Annual Father and Daughter Dance, when fathers and daughters can spend time dancing the night away, while creating cherished memories and enjoying delectable delights.
Fathers can experience a memorable evening with their “little girls” and daughters of all ages—from tots to 20-somethings-plus—can delight in this special one-on-one evening with their fathers.
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.
