  • Went here for one of their adult nights. Best thing ever. Food, Drinks, Live Music, and Science. Defiantly Recommend going.  more »
  • This has been a favorite place for our family for years. Love it so much, we bought a yearly pass. Some of the exhibits change, but many are permanent. This is a fun place for the adults as well.  more »
  • A bit outside of Atlanta but still easy to find. Very comfortable viewing area and well narrated. Can normally find discount coupons on Groupon  more »

  • Very disappointed. The place itself seemed very limited in what it has to offer and activities for learning. We went for the main attraction....the planetarium show. We expected to see amazing images of the sky and solar system, like what they have displayed on the photos under Google Maps search. What we got was a very boring and mundane show of how to find the constellations in the sky. The presenter was not engaging or exciting either. I would not go to this place again.
  • Phenomenal museum with classic exhibits. Kids visiting today get pretty close to the same experience 20 years ago. I grew up going there and took several science classes through High School. I recently was able to tour through again. It is worth a trip if you're in the area.
  • Fernbank science center is a great place to spend an afternoon with your kids. We happened to go on an afternoon when they were celebrating their 50th anniversary and or able to enjoy many hands on exhibits, their usual collection, and the planetarium. Everyone had a great time, we did not spend a lot of money, and believe it or not it was educational to boot. It was a great afternoon.
  • My kids really enjoy this place and I always have a good time here. They have the best exhibits. This is a must see for visitors and locals alike.
  • It was my first time going. It is literally a history of evolving animal life in Georgia. I went around 6p on a Friday. Not a big crowd. I couldn't tell the staff from the patrons. The black hole showing was interesting and raised more questions than it gave answers. There was another show, but I can't even remember that one. We couldn't go to the planetarium due to the weather so I don't know how that is. Overall, the museum is cool for a free outing. The shows do cost though. Not sure why a person would want to go often unless they're deep into science.
