James and Sarah's Wedding
Atlanta   |   May, 2009   |   Attraction

"This is perhaps Sarah and Jamie's favorite musem in Atlanta, complete with huge dinosaur fossils, and a great IMAX theater. We thought of holding our wedding here, but the possibility of death-by-dinosaur was too much."

Atlanta   |   April, 2009   |   Attraction

"They have an IMAX theatre and some of the largest dinosaur skeletons found."

Atlanta   |   April, 2009   |   Attraction

Atlanta   |   October, 2008   |   Attraction

"Lots to see here including dinosaurs, the stars, and a forest. The most popular attraction is the IMAX theatre."

Kimberly and Christopher's Wedding
Atlanta   |   October, 2008   |   Attraction

"If you're a science nerd (like the bride and groom) this is a fun place to check out. Looking for something to do on Friday night? Martinis and IMAX is a must!"

Alison and Adam 's Wedding
Atlanta   |   August, 2008   |   Attraction

"With its permanent exhibit, "Giants of the Mesozoic," Fernbank became the first museum in the world to assemble a collection of the world's largest dinosaurs. Beyond the ferocious beasts menacing visitors in the 86-foot-tall Great Hall, the exhibit, "A Walk Through Time in Georgia," re-creates the Earth's natural history with a local twang, using Georgia's landscape, vegetation, wildlife and fossils. It's a taxidermy wonderland for kids, but a yawn compared to the Sensing Nature exhibit. Tykes buzz around this science-made-fun playground of optical illusions and natural phenomena. If you're with the little ones, also check out the Georgia Adventure and Fantasy Forest; if not, head for the academic Cultures of the World."

Atlanta Wedding In July
Atlanta   |   July, 2008   |   Attraction

"Atlanta's own natural history museum with lots of interactive exhibits and programs, as well as an IMAX theatre. For adults, the museum is a popular date destination on Friday nights for "Martinis & IMAX" (food, martinis, free jazz, and an IMAX show)."

Emily and Bill 's Wedding
Decatur   |   June, 2008   |   Attraction

"General Admission Adults $15 Students and seniors (62+) with ID $14 Children 3-12 $13 Children 2 and under (ticket required) FREE"

Mary and Josh's Wedding
Dunwoody   |   November, 2007   |   Attractions

"Embark on an adventure at Atlanta's home to dinosaurs! At Fernbank Museum of Natural History, come face-to-face with the world’s largest dinosaurs, explore the development of life on Earth through the landscapes of present-day Georgia, connect with cultures from around the globe, and engage in a variety of hands-on exhibits. Last but not least, don't miss the incredible 5-story experience of an IMAX® film! (IMAX® requires separate admission)."

Katie and Matt's Wedding
Atlanta   |   July, 2007   |   Ceremony

"Fernbank is a wonderful place for a wedding! Our guests loved the atmosphere. The only downside of the whole place was the coordinator there's bad attitude on the day of the wedding, but hopefully that won't happen to anyone else."

Atlanta Wedding In April
Atlanta, GA   |   April, 2007   |   Attraction

"The largest museum of natural sciences in the Southeast, this architecturally stunning facility borders 65 acres of pristine forest. Architect Graham Gund has achieved a marvelous integration of interior/exterior space The building, which nearly eclipses the attractions inside, centers on a soaring three-story, sky-lit Great Hall -- an Italianate brick atrium with spiral staircases, lofty columns, and windows revealing the woodlands beyond. Look closely at the museum floors, where ancient fossil remains from the late Jurassic period are embedded. When the Great Hall was designed, it was meant to one day be the home of a large-scale permanent dinosaur exhibition, and in 2000, Fernbank became the only place in the world to display a complete mounted skeleton of Argentinosaurus, the largest dinosaur ever found. The dramatic permanent exhibit, "Giants of the Mesozoic," features the 90-foot-long plant-eater as it defends its nest of eggs against the 45-foot-long Giganotosaurus, the largest meat-eater ever classified. Hovering above in the 86-foot-tall hall are two flying pterosaurs. Dinosaurs just don't get any bigger than this, and it's a little hair-raising to walk into the hall and see these beasts towering over the tiny humans below. There are several other permanent exhibits, including "A Walk Through Time in Georgia," which uses the state as a microcosm to tell the story of the earth's development through time and the chronology of life upon it. Visitors travel back 15 billion years to experience the origins of the universe (the Big Bang) and the formation of galaxies and solar systems, and into the future to consider the fate of our planet. Eighteen galleries re-create landform regions from the rolling pine-forested foothills of the Piedmont Plateau to the mossy Okefenokee Swamp, from the Cumberland Plateau (where you can walk through a typical "limestone cavern") to the marshy Coast and Barrier Islands. Exhibits are enhanced by creative films and videos, informational audiophones, interactive computers, sound effects, and old-fashioned field guides -- not to mention more than 1,500 fabricated plants and mounted specimens of birds and animals. "Sensing Nature" tantalizes your senses with hands-on exhibits that explore how we experience the natural world. The room swims with computers, colored lights, and mirrors, and you can step into a life-size kaleidoscope, play with perspective, gaze into infinity, see physical evidence of sound waves, and mix colors on a computer. The "Children's Discovery Room," open daily June through August and on a limited basis during the school year, includes Fantasy Forest, a colorful play area designed for preschoolers (ages 3-5), where kids can become bees and pollinate flowers, climb a treehouse, walk through a swamp, and play at being farmers. The state-shaped Georgia Adventure is a similar discovery room for ages 6 to 10. While you're here, be sure to catch a stunning IMAX film (buy tickets as soon as you enter the museum; they sometimes sell out). The immense IMAX screen -- 5 stories high and 72 feet wide -- puts you right in the middle of all the action. Other museum attractions include a wetlands exhibit, a dramatically colorful living coral reef aquarium, a unique shell display, a gemstone collection, and the McClatchey Collection of jewelry and textiles from the old Silk Road countries. A museum store is stocked with entertaining and educational gifts and books, and there's a restaurant with arched windows overlooking Fernbank Forest and outdoor patio seating."
