This past weekend we make a spur of the moment trip an hour north of Atlanta to visit the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, GA. This may be the best museum for kids in Georgia!
While Tellus is a new creation, its roots lie in the collection of the old Weinman Mineral Museum. The brand new 120,000 square foot facility, on a beautifully manicured campus, has it all: space stuff, dinosaurs, old cars, a planetarium and the core collection of rocks and minerals.
The campus is beautiful, the exhibits include an extensive play and learn areas, and there is even an opportunity to touched fossilized dino poop. What more do you want? Load up the Family Truckster and hit the road!
