Southern Museum to Open on Sundays
(Kennesaw, GA) — Sundays in Kennesaw are more fun than ever before! The Southern Museum invites the public to visit on Sundays from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm, just in time for the holidays. Sunday hours begin on November 14th. Now families have more opportunities to enjoy the General, the Glover Machine Works and Jolley Education Center. Add the Museum to your must-do list over the holidays!
Be sure not to miss the current Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit “The Way We Worked,” which ends on November 21st. Work and the workplace have gone through significant changes between the mid-19th century, when 60 percent of Americans made their living as farmers, and the late 20th century. “The Way We Worked” features 86 photographs from the National Archives focusing on the history of work in America and documenting work, clothing, locales, conditions and conflicts. These exquisite photographs span the years 1857 to 1987 and provide visitors with a fascinating glimpse of a nation at work.
“The Way We Worked,” was created by the National Archives with the support of the Foundation for the National Archives and is organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution of Traveling Exhibition Services (SITES).
A Smithsonian Institution affiliate, the Southern Museum features collections of rare Civil War weapons, uniforms and other personal items; an exciting exhibit about The Great Locomotive Chase, including a short movie; and a full-scale replica of a locomotive factory that helped rebuild the South after the war.

Admission is $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors, $5.50 for children ages three through 12 and free children two and under.
