4.0
#7 of 35 in Museums in Atlanta
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. Because you cannot reserve tour times online, arrive early to ensure you'll get a spot.

  • The video you watch was the highlight of the tour. It was all bout the details in the filming of Gone With the wind. The house itself was a short walk through just to give you an idea how Martha Mitch...  more »
  • Getting to know to experience why she called her apartment "The Dump" was fantastic. The tour guide was very pleasant. Going through the entire restoration and Margaret Mitchell history.  more »
  • I was excited about the leadership. The lady spoke clean English for us and very slowly so we could understand everything. The apartment of Magret Mitchell, which was well preserved. Funded by Mercedes Benz, destroyed with arson and rebuilt by mercedes Benz. It's not quite cheap, but it's worth it.

  • I confess that I have neither read the book nor seen the film, but I found this museum very interesting. The guide (also called Margaret) was very knowledgeable and made me want to find out more about this tiny but talented lady. There is a room which shows the 1988 documentary about the making of 'Gone with the Wind' which I found fascinating, but beware: it is two hours long!
  • This is the story of Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With The Wind and the making of the movie. This is an awesome story and a must see if you are interested in history. I promise it will not be a waste of your time!
  • Although I was only able to view this location from the gate, it was cool to see. The historical value of places like this is undervalued (in my opinion). I was glad to have found it within walking distance of the restaurant I was at.
  • Good experience. Apt had period furniture & the staff was very knowledgeable. I asked a few questions; all were answered to my satisfaction. Be sure to attend tour through home w guide.
  • Very nice tour back in times. Not a big museum, but if you like GWTW, it's a must see.
