The Fernbank Museum of Natural History is located in Atlanta, Georgia. Its mission is to encourage a greater appreciation of the planet and its people. The museum was opened in 1992 but its history goes all the way back to 1938 when the charter for Fernbank was first created. There are 9 permanent exhibits (including the popular dinosaur exhibits) as well as several special exhibits. In addition, don’t miss out on the 5 story IMAX theater experience. It’s the biggest screen in town! Be sure to check the calendar of events for special educational lectures and events such as Darwin After Dark.
