|About these ratings|
Just a short drive east of the airport and Daytona International Speedway, the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS) is one of the biggest and most popular museums in the city. Nestled within the Tuscawilla Preserve, a 90-acre hydric hammock, the museum's lush environment is a quiet respite from the hubbub around the speedway. Here you'll find plenty of Americana, like vintage automobiles, railroad cars and Florida's largest collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia. The museum also boasts artifacts from around the world, including Cuban, Chinese and African art. And while the museum is chock full of art exhibits, it doesn't skimp on the science. Head to the planetarium for multimedia shows and special presentations about our solar system. And don't forget to visit the Charles and Linda Williams Children's Museum (located within the same complex) where kids can play with interactive exhibits and learn about science, music and and physics, among other subjects.
Recent visitors praise the museum's diverse collections, and note that its varied exhibits make it a great family attraction. The museum welcomes visitors Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $12.95; seniors and students pay $10.95 and children ages 6 to 17 get in for free. Entrance to the planetarium is included with museum admission.
