Natural History Museum

The Georgia College Natural History Museum is an academic and research treasure for students, faculty, staff and the public in the southeastern United States. The 2,500-square-foot museum is dedicated to earth sciences, emphasizing paleontology – the study of fossils and ancient life forms.

The museum opened in 2004 and is an official repository for National Park Service specimens. It's also home to a full-dome planetarium featuring state-of-the-art graphic projection. Built in 2008, the Planetarium provides educational programs and shows about astronomy and the night sky. 



The mission of the Natural History Museum is to enhance and strengthen the impact of science education and exploration in our audience, which includes students, local and regional communities and visiting professionals, by continued growth of our natural history collections, research, exhibits and planetarium shows.
