About Us

Fernbank inspires life-long learning of natural history through dynamic programming to encourage a greater appreciation of our planet and its people. Science education is at the heart of Fernbank’s mission, and the Museum remains dedicated to reconnecting people to nature, restoring a sense of wonder in the natural world, and stimulating an interest in science, the environment and human culture. Fernbank provides significant learning opportunities for all ages and cognitive levels, including families and students from vulnerable populations, through permanent and special exhibitions, IMAX® films, educational field trips, family programming opportunities, summer camps, lectures and more.
