A quintessential field trip experience for Atlanta students, the Fernbank Museum of Natural History allows children the opportunity to explore the planet and its people with both hands-on and hands-off exhibits. These explore everything from modern, foreign world cultures to prehistoric earth, and the Fernbank NatureQuest exhibit is by far the most popular. This interactive experience allows children to explore various ecosystems around the world, while the A Walk Through Time in Georgia exhibit walks through the state's natural history in the context of the development of the planet.
In addition to exhibits, Fernbank also has an impressive IMAX theater with a five-story-high, 72-foot-wide screen, making it the largest movie screen in Atlanta. While most of the films shown are educational, Fernbank does sometimes host special events and programming in the theater.
Fernbank Museum of Natural History is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., although it does occasionally host night events. The museum is open daily, only closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, and is located near Emory University, just east of Midtown. Museum tickets cost $18 for adults, with slight discounts for student, seniors and children.
