Fodor's Expert Review Fernbank Museum of Natural History
One of the largest natural-history museums south of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., this museum offers more than 12,000 square feet of gallery space and an on-site 3-D 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 the second Friday of each month, the museum hosts Fernbank After Dark, which includes live music and food and cocktails for purchase.
