The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History, 2829 Cherokee St. in downtown Kennesaw, will offer free admission from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.

During the special free day, visitors will have an opportunity to explore the Museum’s permanent exhibits and learn about the Great Locomotive Chase, one of the Civil War’s most thrilling episodes. Guests can also see a replica of the Glover Machine Works, a locomotive factory in nearby Marietta that helped rebuild the South after the war.

“We are offering this special day to invite new visitors to come for free and also to thank our loyal patrons for their continued support,” said Kelly Briscoe, the Southern Museum’s events coordinator. “We are looking forward to sharing the Museum’s unique exhibits with guests whether it’s their first time or their 100th time visiting.”
