Our Education Mission

For more than 55 years, the Museum of Arts and Sciences has provided a wide offering of programs for school groups, homeschoolers, college students, adults, and families. Guided school programs, family days, hands-on activities, toddler programs, classes, lectures, trips, camps, and exhibitions provide opportunities for discovery and lifelong learning. Whether as an individual or with a group, the Museum can provide an unparalleled educational experience.

Groups

A class visit to the Museum of Arts and Sciences brings a unique opportunity for a field trip. Go zooming through outer space in the Mark Smith Planetarium, discover the ecosystems that surround us, and be amazed by artistic feats all in a one-day field trip. Using the Georgia Performance Standards, the Museum provides relevant guided tours of exhibits, programs, and classrooms. The Museum can also assist college classes with organized group visits or required visits for undergraduate and graduate students. Special group pricing, unique resources including exhibitions, the planetarium, animal programs, and staff-led programs can be provided to coordinate with your class needs. Call 478.477.3232 ext. 314 for more information.

It's not just a field trip- it's a MAS field trip!
