The Marietta Museum of History announces tours for the smallest of visitors. Based on programs by the Smithsonian Institute’s Early Enrichment Center, tours will be offered to toddlers from age 3 to 5 and their parents. Different topics will be offered on the second Wednesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. and the cost is $5 per family (one adult and up to three children), additional adults and children are $5 each.
The purpose of the tours is to introduce toddlers to history through very basic concepts like shapes, sounds, games, tools and jobs. Museum Mascots Murray and Etta are whimsical cartoon mice that will help convey the themes for the tours and provide a little fun. The tours will offer a variety of activities including story time and crafts.
We require that you reserve a spot for your toddler by calling our office Monday-Friday from 10-4 at 770-794-5710. Reserving a spot will allow the staff to have enough items for the crafts. Thank you.

Three days ago I learned that we were moving out of state. Again. When I found out about the move, the tears fell. My first thought: Before my son turns three, he will have lived in three different states! I told myself that I was only crying because this move was so unexpected. And, I’m […]
We recently took our first road trip since our move to Atlanta. No, it wasn’t for a fun holiday to some place like Disney. My toddler and I accompanied my husband on his business trip to Augusta. This wasn’t our first business trip together. Before we moved, my husband was constantly traveling for work, and […]
