Field trips are back for the 2021-2022 school-year! We are able to accomodate groups with as many as 115 guests. If your group has more than the maximum attendees, we can schedule field trips over a couple of days OR we can facilitate a virtual school program.
It is our job to "protect the nest!" All attendees should bring a fask covering. If you do not have one, we are happy to distribute masks when you arrive!
With a wide variety of exhibitions and educational topics for 5th grade and older, the Museum of History and Holocaust Education is an excellent choice for your next group trip.
Our tours are free with a reservation. All school trips are led by museum educators and conform to the Georgia Standards of Excellence. Please note that for a guided group-tour, we require a minimum of ten participants. Smaller groups are welcome to come for a self-guided experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
What age groups do you serve?
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, senior groups, and more.
How long are group tours?
For school groups of over 15 students, plan on being at the museum for just over 2 hours. 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 the exhibits they wish to see and how long they have 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."
Who will lead our tours?Tours are given by museum educators and docents who are highly trained and experienced with a wide range of audiences. Please contact Education Manager, Andrea Miskewicz, for questions and more information about tours.
What days and times can I schedule a group tour?
During the school-year (August - May) school-groups of over 15 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, 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).

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.
