    Did you know? Fernbank was named by a young girl named Emily who played in the woodlands during her childhood in the 19th century. She was inspired by the forest to become a naturalist and educator. Read more

    For the fare you get a modern light and airy coliseum-like atrium that is accented by outdated and unimaginative exhibits that feel as if they predate the building itself
