One of the most outstanding educational centres in the USA has literally grown from the forest. Imagination and love for nature inspired Ms. Emily Harrison to preserve 65 acres of woods in the first half of the XIX century. Ferns that grew galore on a creek bank prompted her the name "Fernbank" for the preserve. The Fernbank Museum that appeared here much later incorporated Ms. Harrison's dream of “school in the woods” and inherited her passion for studying and protecting nature; sustainability is at the core of its functioning.

Here, even the fossil floor serves as a lesson in natural history. The Fernbank Museum of Natural History encompasses a variety of fields: paleontology to biology, Native American to Spanish archaeological artifacts and much more.

Modern facilities like Atlanta’s biggest IMAX® screen and professional staff provide deep immersion and rich experience. Facilities include Museum collections, a Museum Store, special programs for all ages, family-friendly activities, “Ask a Scientist” option, Educator Corner, an active Georgia archaeology research program, Star Gallery. This site is meant to inspire and raise new generations of scientists.
