ATLANTApix: Mythic Creatures

Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids
"Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids"

Children are mesmerized by the Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids exhibition at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History and their excitement is exponential as they wonder through the gallery.(opening day post)

Grownups are loving it too. I got lost in the fantasy world as soon as I walked into the exhibit and saw the giant dragon. I was further impressed by the education about the origins of more mythical creatures than I ever knew existed, as well as a few surprises.

Mythic Creatures features dozens of creatures from lore, myth, and hoax. In addition to a life-size dragon, unicorn, and mermaid there are dozens other beasts, elegant and fierce. Mythic Creatures is on view through Sunday, August 14, 2011. 

And as if dragons and unicorns weren't enough to entrance our children, Fernbank opened only a few days ago its newest exhibition—specifically for kids—Fernbank NatureQuest.

NatureQuest is an interactive journey of exploration and discovery that includes an elevated rope bridge, an archeological dig, a "river," a cave to explore...and that's just the beginning. (video preview)
