The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art is an art museum located in Marietta, the county seat of Cobb County, Georgia.

Founded in 1990, the Museum's classical revival building was built in 1910 as the Marietta Post Office. In 1963 it became the main building of the Cobb County Public Library System, which has since moved into a large, modern facility.
The small museum has struggled with financial and other issues; when Donald Keyes resigned as Director in 2003, he was the ninth Director to resign in 13 years.
The building was used to film the courthouse scenes in the 2014 movie Selma.

  • Small but mighty. Attended Magic at the Museum event and was utterly impressed with the entire event! Makes me want to go back and see the place on a regular day. What a fantastic place with such engaging and dedicated staff!
