Fernbank Museum of Natural HistoryA popular destination for field trips, the Fernbank Museum of Natural History encompasses a 65-acre forest as well as a more traditional facility full of dinosaur fossils, Native American artifacts, and more. Visitors can also look forward to an IMAX theater, which showcases documentaries on wildlife and other science-related topics. For adults, the museum hosts a monthly Fernbank After Dark event, featuring cocktails, tapas, live music, and access to all exhibits. If you go, be sure to pose for a picture in front of the dinosaur replicas at the front of the museum.
