Discover The Science Behind The Storms At Fernbank's New Exhibit

Fernbank Museum of Natural History Presents Nature Unleashed: Inside Natural Disasters
February 6 – May 2

Explore natural disasters through stunning displays, state-of-the-art animations, large-scale images, and cultural artifacts that reveal the dynamic relationship we have with the Earth, in a stunning new special exhibition.
Museum visitors can witness what it’s like to stand inside a roaring tornado; trigger an underwater earthquake and simulate a tsunami; create a virtual volcano; touch and examine real rock and lava specimens; discover how people adapt to living at risk; and witness the resiliency of disaster survivors. The exhibition shows that while storms, volcanoes, and other forces of nature are formidable, they are completely natural phenomena. Whether they're disasters or not depends on the choices we make. Nature Unleashed examines how we can prepare for, and potentially minimize, the impact of nature’s fury.
