Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS)#4 in Best Things To Do in Daytona
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.
The newest addition to MOAS is the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, which opened in February 2015. The venue highlights Florida's history through more than 2,600 oil and watercolor paintings, some of which date as far back as 1839.
Recent visitors praise the museum's diverse collections, and note that its varied exhibits make it a great family attraction. The museum welcomes visitors Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for the main museum for adults is $12.95; seniors and students pay $10.95; children ages 6 to 17 pay $6.95 and kids 5 and younger get in for free. One planetarium ticket is also included with general admission.
