Traveling Trunks | Southern Museum

Southern Museum's Traveling Trunk

Bring history into your classroom with the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History traveling trunk! This trunk will assist teachers in meeting the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) and allow students to explore reproduction artifacts using a hands-on approach to learning.

Civil War at Home

Use a diverse array of reproduction artifacts, books, and activities to develop greater insight into the experiences of Civil War soldiers on the battlefield and in camp, as well as learn about family life on the homefront.

Traveling Trunks are available for weekly rental at $50 per week.  Use them as a pre- or post-visit supplement to your museum field trip, or as a teaching resource on its own.  All requests must be made two weeks in advance to pick-up. To reserve the traveling trunk, please contact the Museum Tour Coordinator at 770.427.2117, ext 3169 or at email hidden; JavaScript is required
