Things to Do
If you have a chance to explore while attending RoTL Summit, here are just a few things to do in the surrounding area.
Museum of History and Holocaust Education
Located inside the conference venue, the Kennesaw State University Museum of History and Holocaust Education invites you to explore the lives and experiences of World War II and the Holocaust through interactive galleries, personal stories, and a theater playing movies focused on this compelling era. Admission, parking, and all programs are free and open to the public.
Zuckerman Museum of Art
A part of the Kennesaw State University School of Art and Design, the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art ("ZMA") presents significant works from the University’s permanent art collection and regularly exhibits contemporary works of various media by local and nationally-recognized artists. The Museum's Fine Arts Satellite Gallery in the Wilson Building features faculty, student and alumni projects.
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is a 2,965 acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. The mountains and surrounding park offer over twenty miles of trails that weave through forests, over mountaintops, and through grassy meadows, and make for a great hike, especially in the fall. If you are interested in the history of the park, stop by the Visitor's Center to speak with a ranger, grab a brochure to guide you on a driving tour, watch a movie to learn the path the troops took, and tour the museum. On the weekends, you can take the shuttle to the top.
Smith-Gilbert Gardens’ 17-acre property is rich with botanical, artistic and historic treasures. Fifteen themed garden spaces contain more than 4,000 curated plant species, the award-winning “Garden with Wings” butterfly house and pollinator garden, the crevice garden displaying a gardening style and plant collection rarely seen in the southeastern US, the bonsai collection including more than 70 specimens with monthly work sessions open to visitors, thirty remarkable garden sculptures by internationally known artists, as well as Koi ponds, a waterfall, and child-friendly play structures throughout the property.
