This week we will be highlighting a variety of different Atlanta attractions. We will begin the week off with Fernbank Science Center.

Atlanta Week-Day 1

There are actually two Fernbanks in the city of Atlanta, Fernbank Museum of Natural History and Fernbank Science Center. The Fernbank Science Center is perhaps less known, but offers visitors an opportunity to learn more about space and wildlife. The museum is not very big, but still has a variety of exhibits including an exhibit on Aviation, Apollo 6, and live animals. The live animals exhibit includes a variety of reptiles, such as snakes, turtles, and more. Besides exhibits, the museum offers events and camps throughout the year to provide the opportunity to learn more about science. Finally, the museum has a planetarium that rotates shows throughout the year with various shows during the day. The museum extends to the outdoors with exhibits on gardening and the Georgia landscape. We spent a couple hours strolling the museum and learning more about space, aviation, and the local ecosystem. Unlike most attractions in Atlanta, the Fernbank Science Center is completely free! Both parking and admission are free, making it a great place to go if you are on a budget, have little ones, or just want to learn more about science. We both enjoyed exploring a new museum and saving money while learning.
