Tellus is a world-class 120,000 square foot museum located in Cartersville, Ga. just off I-75 at exit 293. The museum's exhibits open minds and ignite a passion for science. Tellus features four main galleries: The Weinman Mineral Gallery, The Fossil Gallery, Science in Motion and The Collins Family My Big Backyard. A 120-seat digital planetarium and an observatory with a state-of-the-art 20-inch telescope is also located at Tellus.

Eye-popping exhibits, such as a 80 foot-long Apatosaurus and a replica Wright flyer excite and amaze visitors of all ages. Children will have a blast conducting hands-on experiments with light, sound, magnets and more. Dazzling gems and minerals sparkle and glow alongside interactive exhibits demonstrating how the Earth moves and changes.

Our Mission: Because science matters, we engage, educate, and inspire visitors to make scientific connections through dynamic exhibits and enriching experiences.
