Our personal mythical creatures at Fernbank

Today was a WONDERFUL spring break day!  All of the younger kids are on spring break this week.  Don't you homeschool, though? Yes, we homeschool, and we have spring break! The co-op where Rachael and Michael go is closed this week, and Chrissy's private school is out, as well.  We are on track with our school work, so we are having fun!  Monday will be back to the real world!

Learning...always learning!

Today we went to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, located in Atlanta, Georgia.  Fernbank is a fantastic museum, with many exhibits tailored to children.  They have a new nature exhibit that is totally hands-on, and it was a lot of fun.  Their sensory exhibit is always a favorite, even though we didn't get a chance to see it today.  The kids love that one because you get to make huge bubbles, start a tornado, and be a weather-person on TV. 

Fernbank also has a special temporary exhibit that changes three times a year.  The current exhibit is Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns, and Mermaids. It was very interesting to learn about mythical creatures and their origins from around the world.  They had a huge statue of a unicorn, which of course my girls loved.

Where do these kids get their theatrics from? hmmm..

If you live in Atlanta and haven't visited this gem, you should.  For a large family - like ours - a family membership makes more sense than purchasing single admission tickets.  For us, a family of six, it was cheaper to buy a membership - which we did last year. With a membership you can return as often as you would like in the next year.  It also provides discounts at the gift shop, cafe, and on tickets for their IMAX theatre.  But for us, an even bigger benefit is the Reciprocal Benefit through the ASTC Passport Program.  This program, through the Association of Science and Technology Centers, allows free entrance to nearly 300 museums nationwide.  So...as we travel the country, our Fernbank membership will go with us!  Bonus!  Special thanks to our friend Christina for pointing that tip out!
