If you're lucky enough to have a volunteer available to guide you around the museum, take it! You'll have to ask for the guide. The volunteers are all very well educated on the history of Marietta and can depict many stories that are not described in the written descriptions. The museum made me love this town so much more!

I liked all the displays at the museum and was very interesting to read about each one. The history of the Civil War and Marietta itself is priceless.

I love learning history and no matter where I go, I like to check out history about the area. Marietta is a great little town and full of history not just the civil war. If we do not study history we are doomed to repeat it.

It is located in an historic building by the railway tracks in Marietta. There is a lot of artifacts, information and photos on one floor and we spent a long time learning about what transpired in the area. The staff are friendly and I feel well worth the admission price. A lot of work has gone into the museum and... More

Like so many small-town museums we have visited, this one relies very heavily on donations from town residents (past and present). Most of the museum is made up of the history and memorabilia of individuals or families. The museum's one concentration is the history of wars and military service as interpreted through what was donated by the families (uniforms, flags,... More

This museum located on the Marietta Square offers a tour through Marietta's history. The admission is only $7. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The artifacts are a fun look into Marietta's past. The attractions are kid friendly, and the museum hosts special events and group gatherings in their event space often. I think whether you're a Marietta native... More

If you're on Marietta square and have 1/2 hour to kill, may be worth a visit. Very limited collection, mostly old, dusty artifacts.

You'll find all kinds things, Civil War, Gone With The Wind, collectables, tours, books, too much to mention. We've been there so many times, if you know about the Big Chicken, you'll find an ornament for it. It's where Andrews Raiders stole the train in the Civil War, Andrews stayed there when it was a hotel. Great Locomotive Chase.
