Learning More About Visiting The Museum Of Arts & Sciences In Daytona Beach

Museum Of Arts Sciences In Daytona Beach

Looking for something fun to do that the whole family can enjoy? The Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS) in Daytona Beach is the perfect spot to spend a leisurely afternoon learning, observing, and interacting. The MOAS is the largest art, science and history museum in Central Florida, located on a 90-acre nature preserve. The facility hosts over 30,000 items, including the Dow Gallery of American Art, the Schulte Gallery of Chinese Art, and many others. Lots of exciting events, entertaining shows, and rotating exhibits are offered each month.

With eight distinct sections and buildings, the MOAS can easily be a multi-day experience. If you’ll only be stopping by for an afternoon, you’ll need to make sure to plan out your visit. The areas include the Charles and Linda Williams Children’s Museum, Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, Gamble Place, North Wing, Planetarium, Tuscawilla Preserve, Root Family Museum, and West Wing. The Root Family Museum is quite popular with visitors, displaying restored railroad cars, antique automobiles and the largest collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia in Florida. The recently restored, state-of-the-art planetarium is a more modern experience great for the whole family! Relax as you take in 360 degrees of surround sound and learn about galaxies on the expansive 40-foot hemispherical dome.
