When visiting the center you'll want to allow 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours in your schedule. This will allow you plenty of time to see all of the exhibits, to participate in activities and to take in a show. Afterwards you can visit the gift shop to pick up souvenirs and gifts. You'll want to wear comfortable walking shoes and please leave all extra bags locked up in your vehicles. Only bring in what you need during your visit.

The center houses the large collection of NASA Space Shuttle Artifacts in Georgia and a state of the art planetarium. Throughout the year they host a wide variety of educational programs that visitors can participate in. You'll want to visit their website for a complete list of programs that are open to the public and ones that are set up specifically for groups.

Our family really enjoyed our visit to the Coca-Cola Space Science Center. There were plenty of activities to keep the entire family entertained from adults to children. You really learn a lot. If you're going to be visiting the Columbus area...we highly recommend that you pay them a visit, especially if you have an interest in NASA, the Space Shuttle Program and/or Outerspace.
