The Museum of History and Holocaust Education (MHHE) welcomes visitors of all ages. However, some of the content, particularly exhibitions on the Holocaust, may not be suitable for children under the age of 10 (fifth grade).
Who can schedule group tours?
Any group or organization. The MHHE has given tours to school groups, community organizations, religious groups, scout groups, and senior groups.
How long are group tours?
We recommend two hours for most school-groups. Even with interactive discussions and activities, after this length of time, some students may lose concentration.
Other groups may schedule different length tours depending on what exhibits they wish to see and how long they wish to spend at the MHHE.
What permanent exhibits does the Museum have to offer?The museum has a variety of onsite exhibits focusing on World War II and the Holocaust. A full list may be viewed here.
What else does the Museum of History and Holocaust Education offer aside from exhibits?
The MHHE has a movie theatre that shows different movies including: "The Short Life of Anne Frank," "Path to Nazi Genocide" and "Women in World War II."
We also offer public tours at 1:00 p.m. on select Saturdays. A full list of topics and dates for Saturday tours may be viewed here.
Who will lead our tours?The onsite operations of the museum are run by the Education Manager, Andrea Miskewicz, and she should be your first point of contact regarding tours. Tours are given by museum educators and docents who are highly trained and experienced with a wide range of audiences.
What days and times can I schedule a group tour?
During the school-year (August - May) school-groups of over 25 may schedule a field trip in the morning. Most of these field trips begin between 9:00-10:00 a.m.
If you have a small group between 10-24 attendees, we can offer you our afternoon tour time which typically begins around 1:00 p.m.
Where should the bus drop us off?At the East Entrance of the KSU Center (3333 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw, GA, 30144).
Where should the bus park?There is ample free parking around both sides of the KSU Center.
Is there a picnic area at the Museum of History and Holocaust Education?Unfortunately, our museum does not have space for groups to eat lunch. We can offer the Commons (KSU's dining hall on campus). You may contact them directly for availability and pricing here. The Varsity Jr. is also a short bus drive from the museum and a popular choice with groups. Alternatively, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park has free picnic space nearby.
