The Marietta Museum of History is one of Marietta's unique treasures. The museum is located in the Historic Kennesaw House, a structure built in 1845. Located just steps off the Marietta Square, the museum is a perfect afternoon activity for visitors to take in along with local lunch and shopping.

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!

Great nostalgia and history combined with events and classes. Also has some regular groups that meet to discuss the past in Cobb or other topics.

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.
