T exhibit takes travelers back to nature
Hartsfield-Jackson brings the outdoors inside with “From the Collection of the Tellus Science Museum,” a new exhibition of minerals, fossils and early forms of motorized transportation.
The collection in Concourse T’s North Gallery boasts Earth’s most cherished minerals, such as gold nuggets mined in North Georgia, the site of the nation’s first documented gold rush in 1835. Another case contains samples of invertebrates, vertebrates and plant fossils that represent the diversity of life formed millions of years ago.
“Nature lovers and science enthusiasts alike will appreciate the natural gems and man-made machines on display,” said Katherine Marbury, Airport Art Program manager. “This collection illustrates the beauty and importance of minerals and fossils and emphasizes the roles that machines play in our everyday lives.”
“From the Collection of the Tellus Science Museum” will be on display through March 2011.
“This is a cool exhibit. I never knew how many natural resources were in Georgia,” said departing traveler Eric Waller. “The family will definitely take a trip to the museum this summer.”
The Tellus Science Museum is 30 miles north of Atlanta
in Cartersville. For directions or information about the museum, visit
