This museum is a great place to visit. I was totally surprised at how much there is to see...from Civil War history, relics, etc. to pictures and history of Marietta. I enjoyed seeing the Marietta Square as I remembered it from childhood. I had forgotten about the Atherton's Drugstore explosion but saw the pictures of that tragedy. This is a... More

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. You can walk through on your own of course, but stop and have a conversation with the folks manning the place to get an additional dose of local flavor.

Parking is located around the square area but it is hard to come by. Depending on the time you park it could be limited to 2 hours. The police dept. has... More

I have been here several times and absolutely love it! Being from Marietta, I not only get to reminisce the photos of my youth, but I get to immerse myself in the rich history of the area as well. When my brother came down from Ohio, I took him there and he was speechless with awe. We used to find... More

We completely enjoyed this museum that truly has something for all! Gun collections, history, examples of how we "used to live", and how we used to dress. Furniture, clothing, toys and more!

I was very impressed with the museum. There was so very much to see, especially the Civil War information, guns, and stories! I also liked the 1950's kitchen - remember it when I was a little girl.
