What is Tellus?
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 like an 82 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.

Lakeside Academy at Tellus Science Museum
This year, students at Lakeside Academy were able to travel to Catersville, Georgia, and explore the Tellus Science Museum.
Students participated in engaging STEM activities. They were also able to witness a 150 million year old Apatosaurus, marvel at a replica of the original Wright flyer, observe a Foucault pendulum, and gaze at a two-ton amethyst geode -- one of the largest in the world!
Thank you, Tellus, for providing such an amazing opportunity for the students!
