I love going to the Thronateeska Heritage Center (and I am 40)! I love the hands on science activity and walking through the historic train depot. History lovers will not only love the site but the very inexpensive cost. You can add to the trip...More

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.

My husband did surveying back in the day so the part of the museum set aside for that interested him. My daughter and I had a nice walk down by the river back to the visitor's center while he looked at the surveying exhibits.

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.
