  • Offers insight into the Fitzgerald's relationship. Learned a lot about Zelda. You get to see a lot of her notes and art. The guide was very nice and informative. Lit fans will love it.
  • So Scott and Zelda only lived here for a month... had I known that I wouldn't have even come out to this museum. Alas, when we arrived there was a sign on the door stating that the museum would be closed for an hour (the place was only open for 4 hours...) and even after that hour was up no one opened the door for us. We saw the crappy garden out back, the placard was rather funny as Zelda's quote implied that she didn't like Alabama but was content until she was able to move somewhere more interesting.
  • Amazingly detailed and authentically Fitz (and Zelda) museum. New executive director has this place rolling.
  • This little treasure is tucked away in a seemingly random corner of a Montgomery neighborhood near ASU, but you should take the time to find it and visit. I never knew a ton about Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, but it seems like their lives were remarkably similar to the characters in The Great Gatsby. They only lived in this house for a few months, but the museum provides a wealth of information and artifacts about their lives.
  • The "museum" is actually just one apartment in a building with 4. People still rent out the other apartments in the building. Needless to say, there's not much to see. The Fitzgerald's only lived there for one month, so it's not even historic. Unless you just absolutely have to see F. Scott Fitzgerald's smoking jacket and nothing else, it really isn't a place to consider.
