|About these ratings|
A short drive from the airport and Daytona International Speedway is the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS), one of the biggest and most popular museums in the city. One TripAdvisor user says that "In a very dense forest setting this outstanding museum is a wonderful surprise in this predominantly tourist/racing mecca." MOAS' most impressive exhibit is its mammoth collection of Cuban art, but you should also be sure to check out the exhibits featuring American decorative arts, Chinese arts, and African art. Check the MOAS' website for hours of operation, and you should also note that the Florida fossil exhibit has been closed since 2009 due to flooding.
You can enjoy the art, exhibits, planetarium and science center at the MOAS Tuesday through Sundays. Discounts are available for seniors, students and kids ages 17 and under. The planetarium is included with entrance to the museum.
