This highly interactive museum provides activities, stories, crafts and performances. Regular interactive traveling exhibits always offer something new. Permanent exhibits include Fernbank NatureQuest, the newest way for kids to explore nature and science through immersive exhibits; A Walk Through Time in Georgia, with a dinosaur gallery and a giant sloth; and Sensing Nature, demonstrating the role our senses play on our interpretation of the environment. Other features in the museum include its floors made of fossils, the star gallery, its forest and rose garden. Fernbank Forest is currently being re-established by the museum, but you can take a guided walk periodically. Check the calendar for details. Don't miss the new outdoor exhibit coming in 2016, separate from Fernbank Forest.
