Why We Like This Place

• You can have a romantic reception under the stars—even in the rain. The Star Gallery offers a sophisticated setting for dinner and dancing with not just a few stars but every constellation in the night sky projected overhead.

• It’s like having your own private tour of Jurassic Park. Arrange with the museum for VIP passes for your guests and they can get a little one-on-one time with T-Rex and other unique exhibits.

• The Great Hall provides an enchanting view into natural woodlands from the Fernbank Forest Overlook. Dramatic staircases, a stone floor, and a breathtaking glass ceiling that soars 86 feet above the world’s largest dinosaurs make this venue a standout.
