We've Missed You and are Excited to Welcome You Back!
During this "next normal," we're looking forward to serving you again in person, with smiles under our face coverings, science in our hearts, nature all around us, and gratitude for this opportunity to safely reopen.
We are excited to welcome you back to experience A World of WOW at Atlanta's Science and Nature Experience. Fernbank's cautious, safety-first reopening will include several important modifications.
Tickets and Capacity
We are limiting capacity, introducing timed tickets, and requiring all tickets to be purchased online in advance. To make ticket reservations as easy as possible, we've eliminated online fees and are introducing mobile or print-at-home tickets to allow for a contact-free admission process. (Members will continue to receive free museum admission but must reserve tickets in advance.)
Timed tickets are available from 10am to 3pm (last entry at 4pm). ALL guests (members and non-members) must reserve their tickets in advance. Your hourly admission ticket allows you to arrive during the ticket window you choose at the time of purchase. You must arrive within this hour to ensure ample room for physical distancing.
Friday and Saturday evening timed tickets are available for entry at 5:30pm and 6:30pm (last entry at 7:30pm).
Online tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Members can sign in via their own member portal, where we'll reserve an allotment of daily tickets just for members. Walk-up ticket purchases are not available until further notice.
Health and Safety
The health and safety of our guests, members, staff and volunteers is essential to our reopening. We've been working on plans to reopen safely since March when we temporarily closed to help flatten the curve of COVID-19. Our hearts are with everyone who has been impacted and we remain dedicated to following the guidelines of the CDC as well as state and local health organizations to open responsibly.
