    Modest, but excellent presentation and interpretation of railroads and the Civil War. Also, great for mechanical engineers, especially if you like 19th century equipment and processes. Begins with pho...  more »

    Great way to spend the afternoon, or a rainy day! Really clean, handicap accessible and affordable. Their military discount was more than most places too. Another thing I noticed was the sensory sensitive afternoons; they are the last Tuesday of each month from 2:00pm-5:00pm. I thought that was a really great idea and have seen a lot of the more progressive places doing the same!

    I spent a longer time here than I thought I would. Staffed by friendy, outgoing people ready to try and answer any and every question, the displays are curated into small chunks of history and timeline, Mainly concentrating on local civil war, railroad, and RR Chase history, you are taken on a path that feeds it to you in bite sized chunks. The masterpiece being at the end of the tour. I grew up with Disney, Fess Parker, and adventure. And the General, it turns out, was REAL...and here it is...

    Excellent Mommy & Me program for preschoolers with enthusiastic teachers. We love Mr. Chris who is very engaging. The program is well planned and well executed and makes a family membership worth every penny. We also enjoy the museum's annual Trains, Trains, Trains event, and my son enjoys seeing The General every time we visit.

    Nice little museum! Has lots about Kennesaw locomotive history and Civil War era history. Worth a visit for anyone that likes trains or civil war history! It's not free but prices aren't bad.

    A great museum of both Civil War history and the railroads throughout the Georgia. A year membership is well worth it if you have kids since they'll love going here again and again. Great children's area and interactive exhibits. Also a good place to have a kid's birthday party
