Fernbank Museum Debuts New Spring EGG-stravaganza

Fernbank Museum of Natural History ( will host a Spring EGG-stravaganza on March 28 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. This festive event is the perfect way for families to welcome in spring with opportunities to meet live baby animals, find prize-filled eggs, play fun games, participate in special activities and more.

Instead of a traditional egg hunt, this year Fernbank is offering a new format, inviting guests to enjoy a twist on the popular springtime activity. Visitors are invited to bring baskets to collect a variety of treat-filled eggs as they participate in activities, games and more.

Sam’s Path Petting Zoo will be celebrating spring in Fernbank’s Great Hall with baby animals that will include ducklings, piglets, baby goats, a lamb, a Flemish giant rabbit and a muntjac deer.* Ages four and up are welcome to pet the animals under parental supervision.

“Live animals provide an exciting way for children to learn in unexpected ways,” said Lynn Anders, Fernbank’s Animal Programs Educator. “We’re also pleased to welcome back the charismatic animal ambassadors from Sam’s Path Petting Zoo once again.”

In addition to the animals, the day will feature an egg drop obstacle course, spring-themed temporary tattoos, tic-tac-toe and a game of bird bingo.

Fernbank’s new Spring EGG-stravaganza is included with museum admission and free for members. This year’s event does not require timed tickets, but advanced reservations are recommended. Tickets are $18 for adults, $17 for students and seniors, $16 for children ages 3-12, and free for toddlers and museum members. IMAX tickets are $13 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, $11 for children 12 and younger, and $8 for Museum members. Upgrade to a Value Pass (includes IMAX and Museum admission) for the best value. (See Value Pass prices at
