Western Booth Art Museum

On the first Thursday of every month from 4-7 PM admission is free at the Western Booth Art Museum. I loved getting out of the house and learning new things.

This was a room full of Civil War paintings
This is a painting of the burning city of Atlanta, GA
This painting depicts the youngness of the boys in the war; they recruited boys as young as 7 years old to serve as drummer boys
My favorite painting! The generals attending a ball; Cartersville's general is on the far left
This was a fun painting of some of the presidents
This was my favorite room, it had a picture and a brief autobiography of each of the presidents of the United States; I read every single one
Just a few paintings I thought were really pretty

I am glad you got to go to that museum. I love museums and my kids do too. Probably because we saw some neat museums when they were young. Now they have seen them all over the world. I like to read all the stuff too.
