On view September 28, 2019 – January 5, 2020

Step 1,000 years back in time to experience the sights, sounds, and stories of the greatest trading route in history – the legendary Silk Road. Immersive re-creations of ancient settings feature life-size models, artifacts, and hands-on activities, telling the story of the route’s extraordinary golden age and its influence on the world. This exciting exhibit explores a time when the information superhighway was a network of land routes that stretched 4,600 miles across blazing desert sands and snowy mountain passes.

Woodland Spirits

Drawing inspiration from literature’s countless dark forests, this Halloween-inspired exhibit features a variety of ghostly figures imagined by Fernbank and transformed by Atlanta artist, Laura Lewis.
