MARIETTA - On Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, the Marietta Museum of History will be open for FREE from noon to 4pm.  As a part of the Georgia History Festival, Super Museum Sunday is a statewide program involving over 70 cultural institutions across the state.

Visitors will have a chance to see our two temporary exhibits, Shoppin’ Southern Style, which highlights men’s, women’s and children’s clothing from local stores including Saul’s, Goldstein’s and Rich’s.  Featured clothing includes a robin’s egg blue, two-piece woman’s suit worn by Mariettan, Mrs. Elaine Clark that she purchased at Leon Frohsin in downtown Atlanta, which harkens back to the style of Jackie Kennedy. 

Also, More than Planes: Aviation in Cobb County. For over 70 years, aviation has shaped Cobb County from a once agricultural area to center of industry. Starting with the opening of Bell Aircraft in 1943, Cobb County has been building aircraft since World War II. Continuing during the Korean War with Lockheed, this impact of the aviation industry has been felt across the world. This exhibit will be on display through November 3rd, 2018.

The Marietta Museum of History uses ordinary artifacts to tell the extraordinary stories of Marietta and Cobb County and is the top-rated Museum and one of the Top Five things to do in Marietta on TripAdvisor.  Galleries and exhibits cover topics such as military history, home life throughout the centuries, technology and local businesses from our past.

When: Sunday, February 11th, 2018 from noon to 4pm

Where: Marietta Museum of History, 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060
