Don’t trust the hours posted here. Went on a Thursday at 12:30 and they were closed. No signs posted. Also, if you have been to other Science Centers this one looks really small.

Went to all the planetarium shows last year it was amazing! I enjoyed the star show and the huge screens. I advise if you can make it to go on a day where there's a show. The exhibits of animals are cool and the beehive is very nice. Fern bank never fails to disappoint! It's free to enter but the shows cost some money I feel like only 5 dollars.

Truly enjoyed this museum. Wasn’t sure what to expect but it didn’t disappoint. Doesn’t take too much time to get through, really just depends on your interest level. Had to give a four star rating because when we went to the cafeteria, everything I ordered, they didn’t have. So there’s that...

We have loved this place for years and years. Its quaint and dated and fascinating. A family favorite. It was a much better experience before the Fernbank Natural History Museum illegally stole access to the woods from the people of the county to whom the woods were left. Their educational arm is also very good, giving in-depth access to terrific science programs.

There is a one star review from January and I absolutely don't understand why. This is a full day of fun if you have kids along. So much to do. The Imax movies are always great. The live science show is a kid favorite and this place is packed with hands on areas. Adults will find a real array of exhibits to see and read. A must see!
