This museum is focused on Marietta and has the hotel room used by the leader of the Great Locomotive Chase. This was a great stop for my family during a day at Marietta Square. We spent about an hour here, but would've spent more time if we'd had it.

This is a small collection of things in a historically significant building. Some of the artifacts are interesting. The guides that explain it all are the most interesting.

Really enjoyed the museum! Unplanned stop for me while waiting on my brother to finish his school orientation. Very interesting to see so much history especially the medical section

The Marietta History Museum tells the History of Marietta with photos, exhibits, antiques, artifacts and short stories. The building is original and pre-dates the Civil War. They have an extensive armory with weapons from all the wars beginning with the Civil and up as well as uniforms and other interesting artifacts. Everyone there is very helpful and willing to answer... More

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
