MARIETTA - In March of 2020, like so many other businesses, the Marietta Museum of History shut its doors to the public due to the ongoing public health crisis caused by Covid-19. The Museum reopened to the public in June 2020 with modified hours. We are pleased to announce that we will expanding our hours back to our original 10am till 4pm, Tuesday thru Saturday, beginning Tuesday, October 6, 2020. The Museum will remain closed on Mondays.

To maintain social distancing, the Museum will allow 4 “family units” but not exceed a total of 25 people in the Museum galleries at one time. The Museum will also accept tour groups of up to 10 people, with a prearranged reservation. Visit the Museum’s website where a document will further detail the plans and procedures being implemented.

Sharing history has not stopped during this pandemic. The Museum staff understands that some individuals might not be comfortable visiting in person at this time, therefore they have been diligently creating new content for various social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. A follower favorite is History Loves Company, which is shown live on FaceBook Friday afternoons and features Museum staff giving tours of local history, locations, buildings and more! Past episodes of History Loves Company are available on the Museum’s YouTube channel.

The Marietta Museum of History is also dedicated to capturing what is currently happening in the community. The staff is collecting history related to the Covid-19 pandemic by gathering pictures, stories, and physical artifacts from Marietta and Cobb County to document this time for future generations. Below is link to a document where people can share stories, upload images, and let the Museum know about possible artifact donations.
