We went on a Tuesday and the place was empty. But Jim works on Tuesday only and we were treated to a very thorough 3 hour private tour of all the exhibits. It was wonderful, interesting and extremely educational for the children. Coming from the north we didn't realize the historical importance of the museum till Jim told us all about it. Because this is a smaller museum I wasn't expecting it to be much, but it's very deceiving. The museum is perfect for any children studying the modern era of history (civil war through present day). They actually have some very interesting exhibits, but the tour is what really made the museum visit worthwhile. Without Jim, I'm not sure the kids would have gotten as much out of the visit as they did. He was wonderful with them!!

My boys really enjoyed the gun collection. It's like a hidden treasure at Marietta Square.

They have an extremely interesting collection. The printing presses and the permanent wave machine are my favorites, but the weapons collection is pretty extensive, and the music boxes are wonderful (if there's an attendant there that is qualified to demonstrate them)

I'm new to the area, so it was a good entertaining, inexpensive way for me to learn about the area. Recommend to anyone interested in learning more about the Marietta. Also recommend to anyone interested in firearms, as they have a pretty decent collection there.

Small, inexpensive, but full of interesting information and artifacts about the history of the area dating back to the civil war and before. Nice military history section as well; the biggest exhibit in the museum. Will definitely visit again. Plan at least an hour to tour.

From Our Editors

The curators of the Marietta Museum of History honor the heritage of Marietta and Cobb Counties with educational events, rotating exhibits, and four specialized galleries that focus on different facets of Marietta tradition: home life, general history, the military, and the Civil War Union Raiders. Since 2000, museum staffers have hosted more than 90,000 visitors, guiding groups past Native American artifacts and antiquated industrial machinery in the General History gallery and navigating a 15.5-acre aviation park filled with civilian and military aircraft manufactured in Marietta. Guns, shells, and uniforms line the cases in the Military gallery, which elucidates the stories of the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and Vietnam, among others. The museum’s special exhibits rotate several times a year, with themes such as Y’All Come Eat: Exploration of Southern Food Ways, which features the nation’s largest display of antebellum macaroni costumes. Visitors can drop by Monday–Saturday, or pick up a membership to receive a newsletter and special invitations.
