 Get swept away in this new hands-on, family-friendly experience. 
Now on display through January 9, 2011.

Look beneath the surface, above the clouds and all around the world as you discover the amazing life-giving power of water in this engaging exhibition.

* Enjoy a variety of exhibition interactives including build your own dam, a video microscope to see what comes out of your tap, and a picture block puzzle challenge for our youngest visitors.
* Learn more about life in water and how animals have adapted to live in a variety of water conditions.
* Come face-to-face with tetras, mudskippers and leopard frogs.
* Test your water usage IQ with a game-show-style quiz.
* Experience a towering walk-through reconstruction of a water-carved slot canyon and see how water shapes the Earth.

Be sure to visit the The Local Connection, created by Fernbank Museum. This section reveals Atlanta’s history with water and some of the issues affecting Atlanta and the metro region. Visitors will learn about the uniqueness of the region’s local watershed, the basics of where our water comes from, and some possible solutions to issues in the area.

Admission to WATER is included with Museum admission and is FREE for members.
