Our roommates and I were visiting a friends in Montgomery and we were so impressed! The tour guide was so knowledgable and did such a good job relating the information to his audience. We would definitely recommend this to our friends!

We traveled the back roads of Alabama satisfying our lust for iconic literary home sites (Truman Capote, Harper Lee just South of here in Monroeville, AL). We toured the FS Fitzgerald home and viewed the video provided. It was informative, as well as interesting, especially to those in our group with a limited knowledge of Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda.... More

Visiting this museum was a magnificent step back in time. The romance of F. Scott and Zelda with a reality check. The house and collection is a gem and so is Willie the curator. Having Willie guide us through with history and stories told with intelligence and joy made it twice as enjoyable. Thank you Willie for bringing Scott and... More

Attractive house in a nice area of town. Although F.Scott Fitzgerald only lived here for a short time his wife Zelda and her family were from Montgomery. There is an introductory video, about 20 minutes, which gives an excellent introduction. What the house represents is a museum to his life, times and work. There are lots of interesting letters, first... More

This was well worth the visit. The curator was very knowledgeable. This started out as a docent trip to the Montgomery Museum. This was our second stop of the day. I was very happy that we visited.

There is much to see and the director is both knowledgeable and entertaining. Never realized what a talented artist Zelda was. An intriguing couple and an enjoyable museum.

We had a great time on tour at the museum today. The director took us through the house sharing stories of the Fitzgerslds --many stories that were new to me! One of my personal favorites was viewing the watercolors by Zelda Fitzgerald. It is s definite must see when visiting Montgomery!

The tour guide was very informative, with details of their lives and times. The home was filled with articles, and some memorabilia. I especially found Zelda's artwork very interesting.

My wife and I just finished a road-trip from Salem, Oregon to Tampa, Florida: our honeymoon. On our eclectic trip, we visited a ton of places-- the Red Woods, Scotty's Castle, Antelope Canyon, a meteor crater, JFK's memorial, a butterfly museum, and the Fitzgerald house: just to name a few. Out of all these places, the Fitzgerald house definitely ranked... More
