The Fernbank Museum is an educational Atlanta establishment that welcomes with dinosaur sculptures on the outside, and towering prehistoric bone structures on the inside. Each room takes kids into a world of wonderment, science and culture. Get interactive and create massive bubbles, communicate from across the room seemingly by magic (but it’s science), and have fun with simulating video games that require full-body movement. The experience is rounded out with an ever-changing 3D movie that’s all too real.
YOU'RE ALL SET!

Right now, the museum is closed to prevent the spread of the virus, or to “flatten the curve”. But that doesn’t mean staff will discontinue education efforts that inspire kids to totally fall in love with nature and science. Hop on Facebook and enjoy regular posts that have been fueling the #museumathome movement. A charismatic host demonstrates super cool science experiments, such as creating clouds or small volcanoes with an exciting eruption.
The website offers all the videos and resources on an organized page with links. Kids can take quizzes (heck, adults can too), listen to an intriguing story, or even participate in a scavenger hunt. When joining in on #museumathome initiatives, share your experiences via photos, by tagging Fernbank and adding the above hashtag.
While a visit to the nature trails and indoor exhibits of the Fernbank Museum are a must eventually, kids and parents can kind of pre-prep during this odd yet opportunistic time for learning and creative exploration!
