“housing four galleries featuring extensive collections”

Welcome to the Marietta Museum of History located in Marietta, Georgia. Open since 1996, our museum’s galleries  and exhibits are housed on the second floor of the historic building. Originally a cotton warehouse built in 1845, it was remodeled to become the Fletcher House Hotel in 1855. During the Civil War the hotel temporarily served as a makeshift hospital and morgue. For this reason, the building has become the subject of many stories and local ghost folklore. This notoriety has led to appearances on CNN, The History Channel and PBS. Today the museum houses four galleries featuring collections from the General History, Home Life and the Military.  Some of the must not miss to our museum are the exhibits featuring the history of the Georgia Military Institute, the story of the only slave buried in the Marietta Confederate Cemetery and the building’s involvement in the infamous Union plot to steal the Confederate Locomotive called The General.

Very cool place with lots to explore around every corner. From exquisite gowns and retro kitchen items to hundreds of weapons and technology through the decades. Extremely eclectic and fun!
