CNN Travel Insider: NatureQuest in Atlanta

  • News

Now, for today’s “Travel Insider.” If you have young kids and you’re looking for something educational to do this summer, you may want to check out NatureQuest at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta.

CNN associate producer AnneClaire Stapleton took her son there and has an insider’s look at the exhibit.

As the mother of a young child I’m always looking for something fun to do. Nature Quest, that’s our spot.

NatureQuest opened in March of 2011 with more than 7,000-square feet of interactive educational things to do and see. The exhibit has the feel of a playground and the educational tools of a classroom. Every nook and cranny offers children a new adventure. Unlike traditional museums, at NatureQuest, children are challenged from self-discovery and explore and be adventurous in a hands-on environment just like real scientists.
