This museum is a journey to another time and place having you explore unusual natural wonders. "Giants of the Mesozoic" has the largest dinosaurs in the world.

Highlights of the Natural History Museum include a 900-gallon saltwater aquarium, children`s discovery rooms, a rose garden and a dining room offering views of a 65-acre hardwood forest. Even the floors at Fernbank Museum are designed to be educational, being made of 40,000 limestone tiles featuring fossils dating back to Jurassic period. Hosting several permanent exhibitions including the large dinosaur installation, it has an IMAX theater. Fernbank’s NatureQuest is a recent innovative addition. This cutting-edge children`s wing features interactive live animal habitats and explores ecosystems found in Georgia.
