    The museum is very hands on and changes frequently. Great place to spend the day with the entire family. They have special events throughout the year. Worth becoming a memeber.

    Always Something New

    We've had annual passes several times over the years. There is always something new to learn. The exhibits are amazing, and so many of them are kid friendly. Much better than the museum up in Cartersville.

    Great place to take the family especially on hot summer days. Plenty of things there to keep the kids busy and I am happy to escape the summer heat.

    the exhibitions that rotate there are truly compelling and exciting. A very cool place to hang out, buy great art, get a way at lunch from the hustle or bustle of workdays and travel back to history inside this place.

    My children just love going to the Fernbank. They learn something new every time and it's something we can do as a family. I just wish it wasn't so crowded on the weekend, but other than that we love it!

    Disappointed AGAIN!

    We took our children there 3 years ago and there were so many displays that didn't work in the children's section. Returned today and the SAME THINGS were still out of order or missing pieces. I spoke with Christy from the administrative office and she got really defensive and gave me some song and dance about 'we're doing our best'. If that's their BEST, what a shame! I think they have lost focus that 'children' are the bread and butter of that place! The areas for children should ALWAYS be functioning and in perfect working order...or at least great working order. We will never return. The dinosaurs are cool and some other displays are nice but more for adults. $15/person isn't worth the frustration if you're looking for a fun place to take your kids.

    We visited using the ATL City Pass. It was definitely smaller than other museums we visited. Some things needed updating or seemed a little too much for kids. It's also a little hard to find, compared to other siteseeing locations.

    I went to 'fern bank' with a school trip. It was very expensive and extra to see the movie.. don't sit up close unless you want to get sick.. the museum has a lot of uninteresting things in it. Things that belong in a huge museum where they might interest at least a small segment of society. I have been to other museums and as a whole not only does fern bank not meet the mark, but neither do many in the Atlanta area. The staff is almost non existent and doesn't interact with the guests. Very little information is available on the displays so you really have no reference at what you are viewing and why. The high museum usually has pretty good exhibits I would rather check them out. Fernbank almost went bankrupt and closed. Somehow they were rescued and if not for the fact that it seems to be a required school trip and that $$ for them I think they would of closed earlier and should have. Maybe they should check out other curators who might be able to make something out of this place.

    I've lived in the Atlanta area for 17 years and just made it over to the Fernbank last weekend. What a pleasant surprise. The IMAX movie was very good and the museum has a lot of wonderful exhibits which are very well done. Lots of interactive areas for kids too. If you haven't been, you should make time to go.

    We love it. We became members. We love the dinosaurs, the great exhibits (like From Pole to Pole, Frogs, etc) - coming soon dinosaurs, and super events. Archaeology Day, Reptile Day, Dinosaur Birthday Bash, Bugs Bats and Bones are all extremely fun and educational. There are many more. Members also get discounts and free admission to science museums around country including free planetarium shows at Fernbank Science Center and free admission to Adventure Science Center in Nashville.

    We enjoyed it very much. There was a lot of attention to detail put in the exhibits. It was appropriate for both my young child and my older one. We had a great time!

    Our family took a visit to Fernbank and we really did enjoy it. My preschooler really enjoyed the hands on experience section. It had several optical illusion type things, green screens, giant bubble wands The animal sections caught her eye for a short time as she wasn't all that impressed. Overall a great family trip.
