Marietta was the first settlement of the Northwest Territory and this museum has an appropriate focus on that era of history. Small and manageable for a half day tour, but packed with information and artifacts. Our tour guide was wonderful. A must see for Marietta.

Our tour guide, Peter, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, but not overwhelmingly so. He shared details that we might not have otherwise known, but allowed us to explore at our own pace. We enjoyed our visit. Expect to spend at least 90 minutes. It's worth it.

This is a good educational trip. There is plenty of room to explore all the artifacts, including an original home from the fort.
