MARIETTA - This year the Marietta History Center will be hosting a series of traveling exhibits from Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education through the spring and with more coming in the fall. The second temporary exhibit, in the series, explores the history and heroism of the first African American pilots to fly in combat during World War II.
Between 1941 and 1946, what became known as the “Tuskegee experiment” trained more than 1,000 pilots. Although they were required to train and fight in segregated units, the Tuskegee Airmen proved to be some of the most skilled aviators during the war. This second exhibit in the series will be on display at the MHC from February 18th to March 17th.
The following temporary exhibit from KSU’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education will be “Enduring Tension: (En)Countering Antisemitism in Every Age” from March 18 to April 14. More information to follow.
All of these temporary exhibits are included with regular admission.

Where: Marietta History Center
1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060
Cost: $7 Adults, $5 Senior / Student, FREE for Children under 5 and those with a Military ID
