Featuring Activities, Discounts, Special Features and Celebrations All Summer Long!
Fernbank Museum is packing 90 Days of Dinosaurs into this summer’s line-up, combining exhibitions, IMAX® films, events, activities and all things dinosaur into a daily opportunity to celebrate the most popular creatures of prehistoric time. Every day from May 25 through August 22, 2009 will feature a different way to explore more about dinosaurs at Fernbank. Special promotions will also allow visitors to earn “Dinosaur Dollars” that can be redeemed for prizes.
Fernbank’s 90 Days of Dinosaurs kicks off on Memorial Day. Highlights include the grand opening of Fernbank’s new Dinosaur Plaza on May 30, and the Dinosaur Birthday Bash, which concludes the dinosaur festival on August 22. Every day in between features such highlights as Museum Overnights, Stegosaur Patio Picnics, “Rex in the City” exhibition hours during Martinis & IMAX®, scavenger hunts, prehistoric researcher talks, special activities in the Naturalist Center, money-saving Dino Discounts, games, Weekend Wonders “Dino Lab,” the Lost Oasis 2009: Jurassic Jam fundraiser, puppet shows, Dinosaur Dress Code, and more.
“The summer months are a perfect opportunity for Fernbank to fill the long, hot days with a celebration of exciting and engaging activities for children, adults and families,” said Kristy Richardson, Family Programs Specialist at Fernbank Museum. “Dinosaurs capture the imagination, and people always want more! After a few weeks of being on summer vacation, people tend to think there is nothing left to do, so we’re providing a daily dose of dinosaurs to allow visitors to come back again and again—and always enjoy a new experience.”
Activities are developed to provide something for everyone, from toddler-friendly Weekend Wonders to the young professionals’ fundraising party, Jurassic Jam, and from a Father’s Day picnic to children’s overnight opportunities.
Fernbank will also continue its special exhibition Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries and the IMAX® film Dinosaurs Alive through August 16. Fernbank Museum’s permanent exhibition Giants of the Mesozoic features the world’s largest dinosaurs, and the permanent exhibition A Walk Through Time in Georgia reveals a time when dinosaurs roamed our region.
Fernbank Museum will list the daily activities at www.fernbankmuseum.org. Most activities are included with Museum admission. Fernbank Museum is located at 767 Clifton Road in Atlanta. Visitor information is available on the Web site or by calling 404.929.6300.
