Discover the Teaching Museum North in Roswell Georgia
Visit The Courtroom, the log cabin, Decade Room, Georgia History Room, The American Presidents and Legislative Branch. The mission is to teach the mind and to touch the heart.
The museums offer participatory exhibits coordinated with school curriculum to encourage students to feel and to learn from the past as it relates to the present. There are also programs for adults in the community; this provides for intergenerational learning. Students play active roles in a one room school house, the Writer’s Corner, the Courtroom, and the auditoriums serve as the center for the Arts and for forums on social issues. The focus of our program is the Arts, the Humanities and the community.
Hundreds of thousands of students and visitors have participated in special programs and tours at the museums. Growing demand for scheduled programs and museum use is evident from calendars that are filled from October through May. The museums continue to be a prime example of what can happen when there is a meaningful partnership between schools and community.

Places to visit
The Courtroom - The courtroom looks very much like a turn of the 20th century courtroom that could be found almost anywhere in the United States. To honor those Justices who helped to establish precedents of law for our nation, pictures of several Justices and Chief Justices have been placed on the wall. Students can come to this room and experience what it is like to be a judge, a lawyer, a member of a jury, or even a defendant in a case. Activities involving the courtroom have been developed for children kindergarten through the twelfth grade.
The Anne Frank Room - Visit the new exhibit which is our reproduction of Anne’s hiding place during the Nazi invasion of Holland during World War II. Cathy Kaemmerlen portrays Anne Frank as she shares the stories from her poignant diary.
Log Cabin - Of interest to everyone, especially children, is the Log Cabin room. This room is a replica of a farmhouse in Roswell in the post Civil War period circa 1880. Stories by Laura Ingalls Wilder are told in an effort to create an interest in reading and studying about history.
Decade Room - One of the most traumatic and turbulent decades in the history of our country was the period of the 1930s. The roaring 20s had been a release from the tension of World War I but the excesses of that decade helped to produce the great world depression of the 30s. Families enjoyed radio programs and movies; sports were a big part of daily life.
Georgia History Room - Though Georgia was the last colony founded in the New World, her contributions and accomplishments have put her in the forefront of our nation. Our state has been richly blessed with an abundance of very talented writers who are showcased in the Georgia History Room. Events from our past and present are depicted in pictures, drawings and artifacts.
The American President's - The Presidential Exhibit features life-size portraits by artist Mary Jane Warren-Stone of selected Presidents and First Ladies. Pictures from the National Archives add reality to the portraits, clothes, and memorabilia found in the exhibit. The exhibit also explores the role of the first lady.
The Legislative Branch - Explore our newest exhibit on the Legislative Branch of the Government. It is here that the steps required for a bill to become a law are studied.
