Museum of History and Holocaust Education

 
Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education educates groups about World War II and the Holocaust through events and museum exhibitions that focus on human experiences, politics, civic responsibility, and ethics. Groups can take a guided or self-guided tour of the museum's exhibits, which feature important figures including Anne Frank, Elie Wiesel, and others. Groups will learn about various topics in history such as internment camps, Pearl Harbor, women in World War II, and more. Homeschool groups are invited to attend Homeschool Days on select Wednesday mornings where they will enjoy tours, films, and hands-on activities. Visits can be customized to fit your curriculum.
