Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History

This is our official spring break week but since we went to Texas a few weeks ago I decided to at least do some school. Monday we used as a field trip day & went to the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History. This is located in Kennesaw, Ga on Cherokee St.

We have been several times in the past & have enjoyed it. They have a homeschool day once a month which includes extra activities for the kids. On this last trip they were teaching about the games that children played during the Civil War era, as well as some weapons demonstration. I actually let my husband take our son & took the day off so I do not have all the details about what went on. They have a homeschool day once a month & the next one is scheduled for May 4th, so take your kids. You don't need a group to get the homeschool rate so if it is just your family go ahead & check it out.

If you do not homeschool but are looking for a fun family activity the Southern Museum has something for everyone. They have Children's History Workshops, the next one is April 25th & will be teaching Civil War Tactics. They also have Mommy & Me classes for those of you who have younger children.

For more information, directions & prices go to
They are not far off of I-75 north of Atlanta, so if you are passing through plan to stop by & pay them a visit.
