A Walk Through Time in Georgia

Explore the natural history of Georgia and the story of our planet as you journey through lifelike geographic regions and historic re-creations. Highlights include a dinosaur gallery, a giant sloth, a cave, and the sights and sounds of the Okefenokee Swamp.

Sensing Nature

Stimulate your senses with lasers, mirrors, water, acoustics and more! Sensing Nature playfully demonstrates the role of our senses in interpreting our environment. Interactive stations demonstrate how our senses sometimes interpret visual and audial cues, which can sometimes lead to false perceptions. As you gain a better understanding of how your senses work together to understand the environment, learn how your senses work together to understand the weather. Witness a tornado forming right before your eyes, then step into the forecasting station and deliver your own TV weather report.
