Atlanta Day 5: Fern Bank Museum of Natural History


Since we still have some time to kill before Ben’s meeting, we utilized one of the ticket in the Atlanta city pass to pass time. We went to the nearby Fern Bank Museum of Natural History.

The Great Hall exhibits the Giants of Mesozoic. One of the dinosaur is so big that our camera cannot capture the whole view.

We watched a show called “Rescue” in the IMAX theater. It’s a show about the rescue operation after the Haiti earthquake. It featured US air force jumbo jet, helicopter, ships and personal planes transporting food, water and medical supplies to Haiti while transporting the injured out of Haiti.
