I remember going here as as child and visiting the planetarium. Now I've taken my own kids there it was very fun and informative. They still have the planetarium and lots of hands on things for kids.

Great places to spend the day. Fun for one and fun for all. Kids of all ages would enjoy visiting the train depot and its vintage trains. Only walking distance from the RiverAquarium in beautiful downtown Albany.

SW Ga Regional fine art was ongoing when we visited in June, 2015. Although the Center was small, the staff was very helpful, the art wonderful, the information about the region enlightening. Nice exhibits. Thoughtfully, laid out.
