Fernbank is moving full STEAM ahead!

 Featuring a world-class museum, Giant Screen Theater, and 75 acres of outdoor adventures, Fernbank is Atlanta’s Science and Nature Experience.

Today, we remain resilient, adaptive, and ready to usher in a new era of growth at Fernbank. As exciting behind-the-scenes plans take place to modernize the guest experience, we will continue a 30-year tradition of presenting world-class exhibits and cinematographic experiences featuring the latest in global science. Daring space odysseys, bold adventures in color, live animal survival strategies, and Viking quests are all on the horizon for every age. Cherished seasonal exhibits and dynamic family programming will continue to expand to meet the needs of our growing audience. Beyond this, we will educate (and Wow!) students with new and refreshed school programs—on campus, virtually, and in the community with Fernbank on the Go.  

 To ensure we can move forward with these programs, we are calling on individuals, like you, to consider a gift to Fernbank’s Annual Fund. * Your generous contribution will support the very essence of Fernbank, from science programming and cultural learning to priceless collections, including the living collections within Fernbank Forest and WildWoods. These experiences are important to a cultural and educational ecosystem so vital to our community.


Thank you!


*Gifts to Fernbank’s Annual Fund are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Donors who make gifts of $1,000 or more will receive recognition on a digital donor panel in special exhibitions during 2022.  

 Fernbank is a 501 (c)(3) with a mission to ignite a passion for science, nature and culture through exploration and discovery. 

 Fernbank holds accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), a distinction that signals the integrity and accessibility of Fernbank’s collections and our commitment to education and public service. Fewer than 4% of museums nationwide achieve this status.
