Tour the house where author Margaret Mitchell lived and wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Gone with the Wind" when you visit Margaret Mitchell House. Take a self-guided tour of the museum--listed on the National Register of Historic Places--or take the guided tour through the three-story house,(offered multiple times daily). Stop by the visitor center and learn about the author, the events that led up to her writing of the book, and the making of the 1939 film based on the novel. You'll find a "making of the movie section" in the next building that holds an array of artifacts and photos from the original filming.

  • Margaret Mitchell actually lived in just a small portion of the house. So the actual amount you tour is pretty small. But... the main part of the tour is the information on Margaret Mitchell as a pers...  more »

  • Cool historic house with great Atlanta history. It's ashame there's not more of the history relating to the Mitchell's around, but this apartment complex is a good representation. The information in the exhibits and the tour guide taught me things I never knew. Happy to support Atlanta's heritage. Plus it's a great weekend activity to go walking midtown.
  • I brought my mom and my aunthere on Mother's Day and it was a home run they loved it I enjoyed my self as well upon coming in I was greeted by a young lady that was very friendly and I asked her where the restroom was a she not only told me she showed me and ended the conversation off with you all enjoy. All of the employees are friendly but she went beyond and before we left me and my mother asked her how long had she been working with you all and. She told us 2 weeks we couldn't believe it you guys keep up the great work.....
  • Nothing too fancy about the actual house, but the tour was fantastic. What an interesting and inspiring woman, and I don't say that lightly. Definitely check it out if you like the book/movie or just need something to do for a few hours one Saturday around Tech campus.
  • Lots of cool Gone With the Wind memorabilia. Not sure it's worth the $13 admission.
  • The tour guide, Linda, was knowledgable and entertaining. So glad I took the tour. All employees were very friendly.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
