This is a great local attraction for the whole family. Kids love it, adults do too. It has a lot to show and activities for the kids to do. It is a learning experience, so it is perfect for the summertime when the kids need to do something educational.

My parents took me here when I was little so it had been since the 80's I had visited. My girlfriend had never been before.

While visiting the Berman museum next door, we purchased the combo ticket to the Natural History museum. There were many different areas with lots to see. An extremely varied collection. There's a mummy! In Anniston Alabama!

It was a very nice museum. It was well maintain, very clean, and had lots of historical information and it keeps us entertained for a few hours. We were impressed with the museum.

We live north of Atlanta and are always looking for interesting new places to take the kids. This museum is only two hours away, so we went to try it out, and were so pleasantly surprised at the quality! Very educational exhibits about animals and other topics, and the kids really enjoyed it.
