  • This is the second time we’ve gone to Fernbank. The first time our daughter was 8 and now she’s 15. She still found it fun and fascinating. We all enjoyed the exhibits. They were well displayed and...  more »
  • The museum is a little dated. We enjoyed the building and the grounds. I think children would like this much more than adults.  more »

  • Was such a beautiful museum. Wished they would have had more amenities open but understood with the virus going on it just wasn't possible. The Outdoor scenery was nice. Only took about 1 hour to view everything open. The cafe area was huge but they could use a larger "snack" selection to match. Drinks were not cold and only bagged chips or one selection of ice cream to choose from. We managed to collect enough change for the ice cream vending machine which gave us the wrong selection. My kiddo was disappointed but made it work. Overall we had a good visit. Worth the time
  • Amazing museum, good place for kids to learn and understand science. They got a 3 miles trail, perfect for a date walk. Although it should have an advice of bringing your own water, or perhaps it was my mistake to no do so. I was expecting more dinosaur fossils. They had a beautiful Christmas tree expo when I went. Quite nice.
