Greetings,

I certainly admire your resolve on this subject. However, I will not get into my thoughts related to this matter.

We have a membership to all of the highlighted places. Exceptions: Fernbank Science Ctr. (which is free) and The Children's Museum. We can't walk out of the Aquarium w/o the children wanting to walk over to the Children's Museum. We've certainly done that and we've been to "the old" Fernbank. I've expressed my disappointment over the possible closing of the Science Ctr. in another thread. We have not been to Ctr. of Puppetry Arts. I've heard of "dialogue in the dark."

I certainly appreciate you for actually recommending some alternatives. I commend you!

Is this conjecture, or do you have a source for this?

I saw it, with my college-aged son. I wouldn't describe it as inappropriate for young kids, but it may bore them. In order to get the most from what you are seeing, you have to read the information at each exhibit. I am actually surprised it's still in Atlanta. I saw it at least 3 years ago, and we pretty much had the rooms to ourselves, with the exception of a high school class. Most of those students were breezing through the exhibits, with few spending time at most of what was on display.

Greetings,

I took my daughter yesterday: 5 July. She enjoyed it. In fact, she was quite fascinated! I was happy to see that she was not the only small child there. Her only disappointment was that I did not/ would not purchase a $15.00 stuffed toy red blood cell. She had to settle for a $10.00 poster of the muscular system.

I appreciate your post!
