What makes your venue unique?

Located just minutes from midtown Atlanta, Fernbank Museum of Natural History is nestled among the
rolling estates and scenic landscapes of historic Druid Hills. The grand elegance of the Museum’s brick façade is highlighted by the softly lit drive, illuminated pillars and enchanting dinosaur fountain.

Inside, the Great Hall atrium features dramatic lighting, a view into natural woodlands
from the Fernbank Forest® Overlook, and a breathtaking glass ceiling that soars 86 feet above the world’s largest dinosaurs. The Great Hall provides an enchanting setting that takes a cue from the brilliance of daylight or the glow of the moon. A white spiral staircase, lofty columns, light brick archways and fossil-filled limestone floors add neutral, yet spectacular, touches to your event while allowing an open palette for personalizing your décor.
