Best Attractions & Activities: Located along Ponce near the Carter Center, the Fernbank Museum of Natural History is an interactive museum that will appeal to people of all ages. Permanent exhibits include dinosaur fossils and massive skeletons, an exhibit dedicated to Georgia's geography, 16th Century Spanish artifacts from St. Catherines Island and an exhibit exploring the world's various interpretations of personal adornments (everything from jewelry to masks). Visiting exhibitions and regularly scheduled educational and social events add to the appeal. The museum is also home to a five-story IMAX theater (the biggest movie screen in Atlanta) airing acclaimed nature films at multiple times throughout the day.

Museums: This highly interactive museum has activities, stories, crafts, and performances. Visitors can learn about the state of Georgia, through exhibits that explore its history, including the dinosaurs that lived there. In, fact, people who love dinosaurs can see the largest dinosaurs in the world, the Argentinosaurus and the Giganotosaurus. In the permanent ???Conveyed in Clay??? exhibit, you can learn about pottery that goes back about 5,000 years. Created in Georgia, the Fernbank will introduce you to the first pottery made in North America. Some of the other features in the museum include its floors made of fossils, the star gallery, its forest and rose garden.
