Free T-Shirts for First 100 'Trains' Attendees | Southern Museum

The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History will be giving free t-shirts to the first 100 attendees of the Museum's “Trains, Trains, Trains” event on Saturday.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, in the museum’s Jolley Education Center.

This family event will include train crafts, operating model trains and tips and techniques for building a home layout. The event will also include interactive activities, including a train-themed story time, a Thomas & Friends activity center, railroad music and vendors selling a variety of train-related items.

In addition to the day’s events, visitors have an opportunity to explore the museum’s permanent exhibits to learn about the General, a locomotive involved in the Great Locomotive Chase, one of the Civil War’s most thrilling episodes. The museum also includes a full-scale replica of Glover Machine Works, a locomotive factory in nearby Marietta that helped rebuild the South after the war.

Museum admission is $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors, $5.50 for children ages 4-12 and free for children three and under; coupons and discounts will not be accepted on the day of the event. The museum is located at 2829 Cherokee Street in downtown Kennesaw.
