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.

The museum is located in a building that once was a hospital for both sides in the Civil War. It is loaded with artifacts and history of Marietta and Cobb county. Be sure to make this a stop. The entry was only $7 per person.

Very interesting place to visit. First picture is of an old electric hair curler. Second shows only a small amount of the gun and rifle collection. Lots of other old stuff to see here.
