An unidentified mother and child attend a past Mommy & Me event at The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History in Kennesaw.

The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History in Kennesaw has resumed programming for two popular children’s programs and their monthly Sensory Friendly Afternoons.

Mommy & Me, the Southern Museum’s preschool program, will take place on the first and third Thursday of each month. Mommy & Me is specifically designed for children ages 3-5 and their caregivers. Attendees are invited to discover and explore the world through play. Each week will have a different theme, with an in-person story time, a movement activity and art.

Homeschool Workshop Series will be the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Attendees will discover new train-themed concepts and apply them to their own invention, art project, machine or game. Workshops are multidisciplinary and can include hands-on projects, games, guided activities and demonstrations.

Both programs are included in Museum admission and free for Museum members. Both are now a timed, hour-long program with enhanced cleaning that adheres to social distancing and safety guidelines.

Mommy & Me have a 10 a.m. and noon class time and the Homeschool Workshop Series has a 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. class time.
