Girl Gang Goes To Fernbank Museum
This post is sponsored by the Fernbank Museum; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
On Intern Alyssa’s last day, we decided to do something in our city we’ve never done before: Adventure to Fernbank Museum! From our quick search on Instagram, we knew it was not your average ATL attraction. Not only are there a number of museum exhibits + experiences, but they also have a 3D theatre and tons of outdoor adventure with beautiful scenery!
Talk about a warm welcome. As soon as you enter Fernbank, you’re greeted by the Dinosaur Plaza, a centerpiece of bronze dinosaurs. If you’re a dinosaur or fossil enthusiast (like Intern Alyssa apparently is!) there’s so much more to see and learn about including the Giants of the Mesozoic right through the front doors!
World of Shells
Our favorite exhibit was the World of Shells. Not only was it so cool seeing the wide array of shells, but so interesting to learn about the life processes of them. Also - shells are in style this season and we’ve been rocking our puka shell earrings around Girl Gang HQ endlessly. Needless to say, we were daydreaming of all the fashion statements we could have made with the exhibit.
Stepping outside the museum into the incredible Fernbank Forest felt like a whole ‘nother world! It consists of 75 acres of immersive trails, hands-on exhibits and so much more. We had such a blast walking around exploring. We actually felt like we were in Tulum exploring; seriously the scenery was truly unlike anything we’ve seen in ATL!
Bonus: if you have kiddos or are nannying this summer, there are a TON of ways to keep them entertained. Think playgrounds and jungle gyms galore. Plus, you can make it educational. Just be sure to hit up the cafe for some waters and lunch to keep them going strong.
Fernbank After Dark
In addition to the daily adventures you can experience at Fernbank, they also offer a 21+ event called Fernbank After Dark which takes place on the 2nd Friday of each month. Think after-hours experiences including live music, tapas, cocktails, 3D films, and all new science demonstrations and exhibits.
If you’re looking for new adventures right here in our city, Fernbank Museum is not to be missed. It’s a museum that encompasses beautiful scenery + experiences with one-of-a-kind natural science exhibits. Perfect bucket-list item for the whole fam, visitors and locals alike!
