We visited this museum on a Tuesday. That's the day a fine southern gentleman named Jim Ross volunteers his time as a tour guide. He gave us a tremendous tour of the museum pointing out the historical significance of every room. He knew his stuff and had a great personality that made the tour a whole lot of fun. There... More

The recent expansion of the Marietta Museum of History added to its already exciting attractions. Historic outfits, gun displays, furniture, small machines, books, recreated rooms of 19th century Cobb County, knowledgeable docents to answer all one's questions - what more could we ask of this amazing history museum.

Great place for kids, family, couples or friends. The Marietta Museum of History has several permanent exhibits that they continue to add artifacts and material to. They have interactive things for kids and the volunteer staff is really helpful in answering any questions you might have. There are some exhibits that they change out throughout the year to keep things... More

I visited the Museum earlier this year and enjoyed it so much I recently bought another pass via Groupon. From the exterior, the building reminds me of those I've seen in Holland or Belgium but inside the warm wooden floors and museum items everywhere make you want to stay for hours viewing everything. A nice display of regional historical memorabilia... More

This museum is located just off of Marietta's Historic Square, surrounded by plenty of free parking and within walking distance of other attractions, restaurants and shops. The museum is filled with a variety of exhibits that span time and topics. Many of the exhibits relative directly to Marietta's history, but connect to the world at large as well. Visitor's can...

I love this museum. It may look little on the outside but it holds a lot of artifacts/history. They have a lot of military equipment to see and I especially enjoyed the dollhouse and the creepy hair curlers. It is a must if you love Georgia history. Also, I love how the museum is in a building that used to... More

I donate to this museum and it feels good. If you are local, visit and give. Many people in this area have antique treasures in their attics. Each working persom in this country gets a chance to donate $3,000. each year as a tax write off. Please visit and talk to Mr Cox about your history treasures. IT FEELS GOOD... More
