Today I took my son to the Fernbank Museum. Blahhhh! Don’t get me wrong, it’s ok for the kids, but adults, bring a friend (for talking purposes – it’s a great way to catch up with old friends) or knitting needles. First I paid $31 (which included a coupon) for the both of us. It wasn’t worth the money. There aren’t that many exhibits – I think there were 2 and there was 2 (I think) interactive areas for the kids. I’m so not kidding. There was nothing displayed in the traveling exhibit room so it sucked. And then you have to pay another $24 for the both of us to see an IMAX movie. No thank you.
Now if you like to make jewelry, like I do, they have many stones for purchase at the gift shop. That was one plus they had going for them.
Times like these I wish I was back in NY. There’s one museum in Atlanta I like is the Don Carlos Museum at Emory University. The High Museum is only good when you see the traveling exhibits; the permanent collections on the other hand, meh!
