Marietta, GA—On Sunday, Feb. 5th, 2017, the Marietta Museum of History will be open for FREE from noon to 4pm.  As a part of the Georgia History Festival, Super Museum Sunday is a statewide program involving over 70 cultural institutions across the state.

Visitors will have a chance to see our two temporary exhibits, Shoppin' Southern Style, which highlights men's, women's and children's clothing from local stores including Saul's, Goldstein's and Rich's.  Featured clothing includes a robin's egg blue, two-piece woman's suit worn by Mariettan, Mrs. Elaine Clark that she purchased at Leon Frohsin in downtown Atlanta, which harkens back to the style of Jackie Kennedy.

Also, Backstage Pass: Baron Wolman and the Early Years of Rolling Stone. In the 1960s and 70s, Rolling Stone provided a national voice to the counter-culture movement, and gave readers unprecedented access to musicians before the days of personal branding. As Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone from 1967 to 1970, Baron Wolman pioneered a new genre of iconic rock photography. Backstage Pass gives viewers an opportunity to experience how the photographers and editors of Rolling Stone guided the creation of the "rock star" persona, from concert, to cover, to icon.  This will be the only chance to see Backstage Pass for FREE during the exhibits run through March 18th.

The Marietta Museum of History uses ordinary artifacts to tell the extraordinary stories of Marietta and Cobb County and is the top rated Museum and one of the Top Five things to do in Marietta on TripAdvisor.  Galleries and exhibits cover topics such as military history, home life throughout the centuries, technology and local businesses from our past.

When: Sunday, February 5th, 2017 from noon to 4pm

Where: Marietta Museum of History, 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060
