Fernbank Museum is Expanding
Imagine being able to enjoy the Museum’s immersive, fun and engaging programs in the great outdoors. Soon, that will be a reality.
We are excited to announce that the Fernbank experience is expanding to the great outdoors, featuring 10 acres of all-new experiences, environments and activities set in the natural woodlands adjacent to the Museum—just off the Terrace. These experiences, expected to open in the summer of 2016,* will feature fun, educational, family-friendly and inspiring ways to explore and enjoy nature.
Incredible new experiences will include:
Dramatic vantage points high in the trees
Extraordinary landscapes along a five-story change in elevation
Footpaths winding through rugged, ever-changing terrain
Spectacular tree pod experiences
Imaginative play areas
Immersive ground trails
Unique sensory stations
Elevated adventure nets
Hands-on water cycle activities
A restored wetland
An education pavilion
A simulated archaeology dig
