Kelly’s Comments: I had never heard of this museum until a couple of years ago, so the kids and I headed up to Cartersville last summer and were very pleasantly surprised. The museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian, and it’s in a architecturally-pleasing building that’s not too big or overwhelming, but not so small that everyone is done in half an hour. Kids will enjoy the Western, cowhand, and Native American art themes. The best part, though, is the kids’ Sagebrush Ranch, located on the bottom floor. The rugrats can ride a “stagecoach,” sit atop a (fake) horse, dress up in Western gear, play kitchen in the Chuckwagon, and generally have a great time running around/yippie-ki-yaying without bothering the adult museum patrons on the floors above.
