Fernbank Museum of Natural History is today’s Around Atlanta guest on Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio! Brittany Loggins, the marketing and public relations coordinator at Fernbank joined us in studio to discuss the natural history museum’s many exhibits, events and attractions. From dinosaur month to Martinis and IMAX® events at night, Fernbank has something for both children and adults.
Currently, visitors can enjoy a variety of exhibits and unique IMAX® films. The current special exhibits include Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear and Humans in Space Youth Art Competition. Beginning Nov. 21, visitors will enjoy the Winter Wonderland special exhibit, which showcases trees from a variety of cultures around the world that are decorated to display a specific holiday or celebration, such as Christmas, Hanukkah and more. On opening day, the museum will host a special cultural celebration event with performances, displays and much more.
In addition to the special exhibits, there are a variety of permanent attractions that visitors can always enjoy. These include Dinosaur Plaza, Sensing Nature, World of Shells, Rain Garden and so much more.
Home to the biggest screen in Atlanta, Fernbank’s IMAX® experience can’t be missed. Current films include Pandas: The Journey Home, which ends Nov. 20, and Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland, which begins tomorrow, Oct. 17.
Another unique aspect of the museum and one that will appeal to adults is the weekly Martinis and IMAX® event held every Friday night from 7 until 11 p.m. This fun “culture and cocktails” event offers a chance to see one of the current films, enjoy cocktails and small plates, dance to live entertainment and view the current special exhibition. In addition, the third Friday night of every month is salsa night!
In addition to all of the exhibits and regular events that are ongoing at Fernbank, the museum has two upcoming special events for visitors to enjoy. This Sunday, Oct. 19, attend Bourbon and Barbecue from 6 until 8:30 p.m. This annual fall social will feature plates from D.B.A. Barbecue, live bluegrass, specialty cocktails and prize drawings. The second event, Fernbank BOO-seum Trick-or-Treat, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Children can enjoy treat stations throughout the museum, play scary fun games, participate in a bones counting contest and much more.
Fernbank Museum of Natural History is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. For families planning to visit multiple times throughout the year, membership is recommended.
