and Locomotive History in Kennesaw, Georgia. The museum is home to extensive
exhibits about the area's Civil War history and the Glover Machine Works,
where many locomotives were constructed.
Inside the museum, tickets are purchased at a turn-of-the-century recreation

to the cutaway roof) and out.
