Atlanta’s Fernbank Museum of Natural History will celebrate holiday traditions from around the world at “Winter Wonderland: Celebrations & Traditions Around the World.”

The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 6, features trees, displays and other programming to reveal how people around the world celebrate holidays, events and traditions.

This year, Winter Wonderland also features new programming, including holiday photo opportunities, a children’s art exhibition and kid-friendly train rides.

The exhibition features dozens of trees decorated with a variety of cultural ornaments that recognize the diversity of celebrations. An activity guide helps visitors explore the decorations and significance of the trees during a family-friendly search.

Festive programming includes dancing, music, demonstrations, storytelling and more on select days, including Caroling and Cookies Weekend on Dec. 1-2 and a special concert with Laughing Pizza on Dec. 8.

Admission is included with museum admission, with fees for additional activities.
