MARIETTA — Kristi Storey, the executive director of The Cobb County Youth Museum, has her eyes on the future.

As the museum wraps up its 49th school year of operation this month, Storey and other museum officials have an estimated $1.4 million expansion on their mind, aimed at providing smoother operations to the students who come through to learn about American history.

“We are a participatory museum — we do not have just static exhibits,” said Storey, adding that today, the museum covers fourth-grade social studies to school tours and homeschool groups, with its exhibit, “America’s Pathways to Independence” focusing on the events leading up to the American Revolutionary War.
