Beautiful Atlanta

Atlanta is a dazzling cosmopolitan city. The arrays of restaurants, mansions, museums, shopping malls, five star hotels, and art galleries are just among the few reasons why Atlanta is worth a visit.

A visit to Atlanta is not complete without visiting the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. At Fernbank Museum of Natural History, history comes alive with cultural treasures and ancient fossils the museum houses. The Museum also holds a special event called “Martinis & IMAX®” on Friday nights, where one can enjoy dinner with cocktail drinks indoors under two large dinosaur skeleton replicas or outdoors in a spacious patio while listening to a live band playing jazz music. After supper, visit the little IMAX theatre and watch fascinating, factual films like Wild Ocean. At Fernbank, there’s always something new to unravel, for it isn’t just a museum — it’s a journey to another place and time.

Also, take time to visit Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, which houses over 11,000 art pieces as part of the museum’s lasting collection. The museum also hosts several remarkable traveling expositions and trade fair. The museum sometimes houses world-famous artworks of the world’s greatest artists, including Leonardo Da Vinci. Don’t forget to visit the museum’s Road to Freedom, which contains photographs and mementos during the 1956 to 1968 period of the Civil Rights Movement. The Road to Freedom has over 200 images wherein some of the demonstrations and exhibits are deeply moving and are a learning lesson on the subject of history. The museum also houses a detention record presenting Rosa Parks’ name, and alarming leaflets that the Ku Klux Klan disseminated in the early 1960s.
