The Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries has named the Tellus Science Museum as its institution of the year.

Tellus officials were honored Friday during the association's annual conference at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens.

Aside from the institution of the year honor, Tellus astronomer David Dundee was honored with a lifetime achievement award for his nearly three decades of work at Tellus, the American Museum of Natural History and the Fernbank Science Center.
