“Great place for curious minds”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

WE've been visiting Fernbank museum for years. Every year they have an interesting exhibition, well worth the visit. I also like the international Christmas tree exhibition in December. I would recommend this museum for families, especially with children 4-12

Reviewed January 17, 2013

were the favorite things for my children to do and at 50 cents or $1 a pop, what can go wrong? The walk in the forest is fun too.

Attended a company Christmas party on my first visit. It was ok but not great compared to other museums. I would not visit it again.

“School Trip to Planetarium”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

The only trip I know that keeps kids quiet because it seems so real.
Relax and sit back while you enjoy watching the sky move and enjoy seeing many constellations.
