Museums Reopen

Cartersville, Georgia Museums and Attractions are once again welcoming visitors with new requirements and safety guidelines to ensure a healthy and happy visit for all. The Booth Western Art Museum requires that all visitors and members purchase a timed ticket in advance of your visit. While your entry time is set, there’s no limit to the time you choose to stay – the average visit is 2-3 hours. Masks are encouraged, and guest should stay home if COVID-19 symptoms arise. If plans change, your ticket may be transferred to a future available date. The Orientation Theater and Sagebrush Ranch are not open at this time, but downloadable family guides give interesting insight to keep even the youngest visitors engaged. Learn More…

The Bartow History Museum is located adjacent to the Booth Museum and serves as a cornerstone of Downtown Cartersville’s Historic Square. Admission guidelines are similar here with advance timed tickets also required. Walk-in visitors will only be admitted if sufficient space allows. Some interactive exhibits will not be operable at this time in order to keep tours in motion. Take a look inside…

At Tellus Science Museum visitors must also have advance tickets and masks are strongly suggested. Visitors will find the Fossil Dig and Collins Family My Big Backyard closed, but there are plenty of amazing discoveries to be shared including The Bentley Planetarium. More Info + Tickets…

Returning to Nature

Visitors are enjoying Cartersville’s Red Top Mountain State Park and Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site now more than ever. While Georgia State Park’s and Historic Sites remained open during COVID-19, many of the parks are experiencing times when day-use visitors must be turned away due to COVID-19 guidelines. When planning your next visit to enjoy Red Top Mountain State Park’s beautiful trails, beach and picnic facilities see ALERTS for updates that may impact your visit.

The Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site is now open daily from 9 AM-5 PM.

Pack a picnic and spend the day at this pre-historic landmark overlooking the Etowah Valley District, which at 40,000 acres is, the largest district in the National Register of Historic Places.
