Museum of Arts & Sciences
Daytona Beach is home to outstanding cultural venues, like the Smithsonian-affiliated Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS), Central Florida’s primary art, science and history museum. This 100,000-square-foot facility sits on 90 acres of pristine ecosystem and houses a number of nationally applauded collections, including an impressive American art collection, a Coca-Cola® and Americana collection, and a Napoleonic collection. Home to the Cuban Foundation Museum collection, one of the most important collections of Cuban fine and folk art outside of Cuba, MOAS is also visited for its popular Charles and Linda Williams Children's Museum, and its state-of-the-art planetarium.

Located on the same campus, visitors also enjoy experiencing the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art featuring the largest collection of Florida-based art in the world. The cafe serves a variety of delicious soups, sandwiches, salads and coffees to be enjoyed in the grand entry or outdoors.
