Fernbank is an award-winning center of science, education, and entertainment. The museum's prehistoric exhibit stretches from the Dinosaur Plaza in front of the building to the recreated Mesozoic scene that features Argentinosaurus, the largest known dinosaur. You can explore the natural history of Georgia and other places and familiarize yourself with different human cultures from all over the world. Kids are especially encouraged to take part in interactive, fun, and educational programs. At the museum's IMAX theater, you can watch documentaries on a 22 m (72 ft) wide screen. Tickets include access to the permanent collection and ongoing special exhibits, and you can purchase them online. IMAX movies cost more.
