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

Very interesting. Housed in the only building on the square not burned by Sherman. Has lots of war weapons dating to recent wars.

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.

The planes were impressive and there was a lot of space to walk around and enjoy looking. However the docent on the premises was arrogant and rude. He did not make it feel like a family friendly facility. We will go back and hope another docent is working.

Ghost, I am pretty sure there are ghosts in this place. Why wouldn't there be? The history holds the answer..

Received a great mini-tour by Mr. Jim R. He is so knowledgable and his enthusiasm for history was infectious. He made it a great pleasure to pass through the museum. Although small, the museum is so rich in American history. It was a great family trip!

Great museum full of local historic exhibits, particularly on civil war history since Marietta and mearby Kennesaw Mountain were major sites in Atlanta campaign in Battle of Atlanta. Many other interesting historical exhibits of Marietta and surrounding area. Great historial lectures held here too. Very nice little gift shop.
