The only downside of this museum is its price. It was over $70 for two adults and two children. We spent several hours here, though, so I suppose it was worth the cost. The museum is located in a nice area, not far from downtown Atlanta. We enjoyed the drive. The atrium is impressive with huge dinosaur skeletons. The exhibit about Georgia's history was enjoyed by everyone. There were kids of all ages (and plenty of adults) exploring the hands-on exhibits on the third floor. The Nature Quest area was full of smaller children, but there is plenty of space for everyone to roam and discover its various sections. My kids liked the "treehouse" with the rope bridges and the "cave" sections best. The museum had a special event going on during our visit and it was pretty busy, but it didn't seem overcrowded.
The food at the cafe isn't that great. The portions are small and the set up is kind of weird--you have to walk into a small room to order. We did enjoy taking our food out on the patio next to the stegosaurus statue.
We would consider a membership here if it were closer to home...they currently do not participate in the ASTC reciprocal membership program, although the Fernbank Science Center does.
