The Fernbank Museum of Natural History, which opened in 1992, is a museum covering more than 160,000 square feet on the edge of the historic Fernbank Forest in Atlanta .
Permanent exhibitions include A Walk through Time in Georgia, which traces Georgia’s natural history and the development of earth’s geography and environment; Sensing Nature, a hands-on exhibit that simulates natural phenomena; Reflections of Cultures, which consists of more than 500 examples of the decorative arts from various cultural groups; First Georgians, a collection of artifacts from the Paleoindian, Archaic, Woodland, Mississippian, and Historic periods of Native American culture; and World of Shells, which explains how shells are formed and how animals use their shells.
In 2001 the Fernbank Museum of Natural History installed Giants of the Mesozoic, a permanent exhibition featuring life-size replicas of dinosaurs, in its atrium. Based on fossils found in Argentina, the replicas include two of the world’s largest dinosaurs, Argentinosaurus and Gigantosaurus. The exhibition also houses a flock of more than 20 Pterosaurs.
In addition to its exhibitions Fernbank includes other special features: the Star Gallery, which uses more than six miles of fiber-optic wires to reproduce the nighttime sky; a teaching area that includes laboratories and computers; a 900-gallon living reef aquarium; the 65-acre Fernbank Forest; the Robert L. Stanton Rose Garden; the Children’s Discovery Rooms; and 40,000 limestone floor tiles that contain fossil remains.
Fernbank Museum isn’t just another museum, it’s a journey to another time and place. If you want to get more information about the museum and its exhibitions, link up with the following links: http://www.fernbankmuseum.org/.
