Excellent Venue!!! - An Eventective User from Atlanta, GA

Fernbank is the perfect location for your special event. We hosted my husband's 50th birthday party here. Everything was excellent. Sarah and her team are easy to work with and accommodating. When the weather interrupted our original outdoor plans, the team immediately changed course with no hesitation. This party was a big hit! We are still receiving compliments. Thanks Fernbank for making our event a success!

Best Wedding Location - An Eventective User from Atlanta,GA

I will start by saying "breath-taking". From the visuals, the service and the location, this was all around the best wedding event I have attended. The Fern Bank Museum is in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The city with so many things to do if your visiting for the wedding. The Fern bank was surrounded by art and many beautiful scenery for the wedding of my friend. They made it a night to remember not only for the bride and groom but for all there guest. I am so planning my wedding here next year.

Museum for Events - An Eventective User from atlanta, GA --- candler park

The Fernbank Museum of Natural History is the best place to host a personal or business event. There are always exciting things to do and it is different than any other type of museum I have ever been to. One of the best things to do at Fernbank is the Martinis and Imax. I love that the slogan is "often imitated never replicated." It is truly a one of a kind experience to have business colleagues or friends! Every third Friday, you can experience salsa dancing at the museum as well. Perfect for a date night! You can also try one of the many day events for adults or children. A recent event for children was the Pirates weekend, which introduced Pirates to teach children about dinosaurs and history. Fernbank has a unique way of combining fun and learning for children of all ages.
