Named after local resident, Harry Livingston, who during World War II, flew B-17s and was shot down, held as a prisoner of war and returned to Marietta after the war, to continue to make Marietta a better place. This interactive classroom gallery will be located in the heart of the Museum.
The Museum believes that history is full of teachable moments and the Livingston Learning Center will explore the history of education and offer history education to our visitors. The objective will be for groups, from toddlers to senior adults and everyone in between, to experience more of Marietta and Cobb County’s history through workshops, seminars and other educational activities.
The design concept for the center features three distinct areas based on three centuries of education; first a 1860s school room, second a 1960s classroom and finally a 2060s classroom. Each room will move seamlessly into the next with the classroom of the future providing the anchor. Technology that will be incorporated into the 2060s section will offer visitors a new perspective of the Museum.
We are currently in the process of raising funds to make this dream a reality. If you would like to contribute to the Livingston Learning Center please go to https://www.razoo.com/us/story/E711sf to find out more.
