Super Volcanoes

Feel the heat! Super Volcanoes explores rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The story of these big blow outs is a tale of havoc and mayhem; mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. In this unique immersive experience, audiences will explore the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system. Can a super volcano erupt in our own time? The answer is surprisingly close to home.
Showtimes: Monday – Friday: 3pm. Saturday: 12pm & 2pm & 4pm. This show may appear as the special presentation M-F at 10am or 12pm.

Engaging and immersive, Earth, Moon & Sun™ also examines how humans learn through space exploration.

PARKING

Parking is available in the front of the Coca-Cola Space Science Center and along Front Avenue past the CCSSC. These spots do not cost. Additionally, the CCSSC is located next to a public deck (located between Trade Center and the CCSSC). There is typically no charge at this deck, except during special events. Please do not park in the bike lane along the front of the building.

Per University System of Georgia policy, vaccinated people are no longer required to wear masks on Columbus State University’s campus. Staff members are not allowed to ask guests whether or not they are vaccinated.

Due to the current public health crisis, we have altered our operations to create a safe environment for our guests and staff. To assure social distancing and proper sanitation measures, will be engaging smaller groups of visitors, on a much more intimate and in-depth level, with timed experiences. This new mode will allow guests to explore the Center more safely. Please read all the information carefully so that you will know what to expect.


  • Please do not visit the Coca-Cola Space Science Center if you are sick, exhibiting fever, or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. Guests exhibiting these symptoms will not be permitted to enter the CCSSC.
  • Wear a mask or proper face covering at all times.
  • Maintain social distancing (6 feet of distance, no handshakes or physical contact) while inside the facility.
  • Signage reminding visitors of proper precautions, including wearing face coverings and maintaining 6-foot social distancing, is posted upon entry and throughout the facility.
  • A maximum number of guests are permitted inside the Center so that proper social distancing can be maintained.
  • Common surfaces and touchpoints are disinfected regularly.
  • Hand sanitation stations are posted throughout the gallery for guest use.
  • Interior signage is in place on floors and at ticket & gift shop counters as a reminder of proper social distancing protocol for patrons who are waiting in line.
  • Restrooms are cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  • Where theater seating occurs, non-cohabiting patrons must be seated at least six feet apart.

CCSSC sanitation and safety protocols are aligned with those of Columbus State University and the University System of Georgia. They also have been developed under advisement from the American Alliance of Museums and the Association of Science and Technology Centers.
