  • Great experience - easy to miss. Originally a cotton warehouse, converted to hotel. Union spies stayed here before stealing General locomotive leading to 'great train chase'. Some artifacts remain. The rest of museum covers broader Marietta history. Small museum but we'll worth visit.
  • It's a history museum. You either enjoy it or you dont. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the exhibits were very unique. It felt like an experience that you wouldn't be able to get somewhere else because of the unique history of the area. Also, the surrounding area is a great place to spend the day.
  • This place was absolutely fantastic a must see if you are interested in mariettas history or looking to be wow'd by just what marietta has been able to contribute to the world.
  • This is a gem just off the Marietta Square. I had no idea it even existed. But there's several fun activities and items for you to see. It's not very big, should take no more than two hours at the most
  • I love history so I am always excited to visit a history museum. I enjoyed all the exhibits here. It is fascinating to see history and think of the people to whom these artifacts were new.
