IMAX-ARABIA

ARABIA IMAX title is very misleading. I thought I was going to experience the ancient tombs, lost cities and beauty of the desert. It was a push on the Muslim faith and their journey to Mecca. The agenda here is to promote the Islamic beliefs. If we were promoting the Christian faith everyone would be forcing the movie to be shut down.The Christian and Jewish community should be appalled over this film.

Great Place to take the Family

My family and I enjoyed the day at the museum, the exhibition is always changing. \r

The children enjoyed seeing the Dinosaurs and the Children's Interactive room. I enjoyed seeing the fish and shells display. We all had a ball learning about the Arctic and Antarctica along with the Polar Bears and the Penguins.

Great setting but not a great museum

Sorry to say I have to agree with earlier posters who expect to see a world class history museum and are entirely let down after paying the enterence fee. Yes, the Fernbank boasts a beautifully natural setting. What it does not offer is any type of insightful or intriguing displays, nothing to really draw a visitor in to the vast learning experience that should be offered here. If it were a free museum, I'd call it a draw and enjoy the nice drive up the winding hill and beautiful sc...view moreenery on the grounds. But it's not and the curator here should really examine what he or she is trying to do.view less

Great Wedding Facility

I love Martinis & IMAX & had to write a review after seeing the fantastic grand canyon one. Martinis & Imax is a perfect date night- especially with the live music & cocktails before the show. I?ve been several times since moving to Atlanta and it's one of my top favorite activities in the city. \r

I actually just attended a beautiful wedding at Fernbank- who knew Fernbank was an ideal location for a wedding ceremony and reception?! The wedding was at the front of the museum overl
...view moreooking the front lawn, and the reception was in the huge foyer which was perfect for the band & food setup- the bride & groom entered the reception down the gorgeous winding staircase. The band had a perfect setup towards the back of the foyer. I highly recommend Fernbank to any bride-to-be looking for an awesome place to have the wedding & reception.view less

Atlanta can do better in terms of a natural history museum

this is a very unfortunate representation of a natural history museum. were are the exhibits? one very large dinosaur skeleton and that about raps up your visit. I am disturbed by the lack of artifacts and exhibits especially after having grown up with natural history museums found in Chicago and Cleveland to base a comparison on. is it lack of funding that prevented this from being a world class natural history museum? I say atlanta should really be able to command better.

Great Date Night

I recently went here on a date night. The martinis and live music were great! The Imax theater after a few cocktails is a fun experience. I recommend it to anyone to give it a try.

Great for weddings!

I went to a wedding and this place was incredible. There is so much to look at and see here. This place can also be romantic if you have wine before IMAX. I highly recommend taking kids here also.
