Fernbank Museum of Natural History

The Atlanta Fernbank Museum of Natural History is a journey into another time. Each room of the Atlanta Fernbank Museum is filled with cultural treasures that are waiting to be discovered! See the "Giants of the Mesozoic," the largest dinosaurs in the world. Then travel from the Appalachian Mountains to Okefenokee Swamp to coastal barrier islands in "A Walk through Time in Georgia," another of the permanent exhibitions at the Atlanta Fernbank Museum.

Highlights of the Atlanta Fernbank Museum of Natural History also include a 900-gallon saltwater aquarium, children's discovery rooms, a rose garden, and a dining room that offers a view of a 65-acre hardwood forest. Even the floors at Atlanta Fernbank Museum are designed to be educational. They're made of 40,000 limestone tiles featuring fossils dating back to the Jurassic period.

Even the youngest visitors will love Atlanta Fernbank Museum of Natural History's NatureQuest - a cutting-edge, innovative children's wing featuring interaction with live animal habitats and exploration of ecosystems found throughout the state and in their own backyard. With hands-on activities for children of all ages, NatureQuest's multi-level clubhouse provides an immersive experience for the whole family.

The Atlanta Fernbank Museum of Natural History is also home to the IMAX® Theatre.
