Fodor's Review

One of the largest natural-history museums south of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., this museum offers 17 galleries and an on-site IMAX theater. The "Giants of the Mesozoic" exhibit includes an exact replica of the world's largest dinosaur. The café, with an exquisite view of the forest, serves great food. On Friday nights, the museum hosts Martinis & IMAX, which includes live music and food and cocktails for purchase, which you can bring into the

IMAX theater movie screening.

Fernbank is great for families with kids younger than 10 years' old.

Fernbank has lots of character and neat exhibits. It's aging a little and some of the exhibits need to be fixed, but younger ones will love it. The Planetarium has excellent programs, particularly around the holidays. If you've got young ones, it's a rewarding place to visit.
