Discovering Fossils and Minerals at Tellus Science Museum
The drive to Cartersville is well worth it for a visit to the Tellus Science Museum, which covers nearly every end of the field. Start in the Mineral Gallery, which includes some of Georgia's most prized minerals in 50 cases. The fossils of the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Megaladon are must-sees, as is the gem and fossil panning area where you can dig like a real archaeologist. Science in Motion discusses physics and engineering that led to the invention of cars, planes and spaceships.
