at the Marietta Museum of History

The Marietta Museum of History is starting 2017 with a month full of events!

Our first event of the year, Tuesday, January 10, 4pm-8pm, Pop-In: Hawaiian Night.  Come explore the Museum in a whole new way!  This Tuesday evening the Museum’s galleries will “Pop Open” for a night of Pop Culture from the 1950s and 60s.  Sure it’s January, but let’s think warm thoughts and pretend that we are in Hawaii.  We will have fun food, games and activities with the flavors of the Aloha State.  Pop-Ins are FREE for Museum Members and regular admission for not-yet members.

Wednesday, January 10, 10:30am Museum Mice Tour: Murry & Etta Open a Restaurant. Children ages 3 to 5 years will experience history through basic concepts such as colors, shapes and counting.  Tours are limited in size so please call (770-794-5710) to register child(ren).  Cost is $5 per family (one adult and up to 3 children) additional adults and children are $5.

Monday, January 16, Martin Luther King Day, the Museum will be OPEN from 10am till 4pm.

BOOM!: Toys of the Baby Boomers will close January 17, 2017. The Museum Staff will hate to see this fun, imaginative and inspiring exhibit close, but we must make room for future exhibits. The last day to see BOOM! Will be January 16, 2017.

The MMH will be closed Tuesday, January 17, 2017 thru Friday, January 20, 2017 for building and exhibit maintenance.

The Remember When Club will kick off the 2017 season on Friday, January 27, at 10:30am. We will start off the New Year looking back at the Marietta Daily Journals 150th Anniversary Celebrations, Time Capsules and photos. Join us as we welcome MDJ staffers: J.K. Murphy, VP of content; Kelly Huff, Image Editor; Damon Poirier, MDJ Historian to our Club.  The guys will discuss the images they have found, the information that has come forward and other “factoids” or anecdotes that they have come across that may or may not have been published in the paper. The Remember When Club is held in the Tumlin Community Room on the first floor of the Museum and is a FREE event.
