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

Nice effort, but it's basically just a house. Some items of interest from the Fitzgerald family, but unless you are an avid fan, it's just a house.

This was by far the best tour that I saw when I was staying in Montgomery. I have been fascinated by the Fitzgeralds and was so pleased with how their lives have been chronicled in this house.

The Fitzgerald's lived in the house when they were together. In the quaint Cloverdale neighbornood. Open limited hours. If you get invited to their fundraising gala, go.

We visit many homes of authors, and we enjoyed this home as much as any! Willie was very very good at explaining the displays and at telling the triumphs and tragedies of Both F Scott and of Zelda. The house was rented by and lived in for only a short time by the Fitzgerald, but it is the last home... More

The curator at the museum said Zelda grew up in this neighborhood and the Fitzgerald's rented this home for three months. Lots of books to look through regarding the Fitzgerald's but this is sparsely furnished, very plain, mostly books.

If you are a fan of the Fitzgerald's you will love this. I love this, not enough time to spend reading everything. The tour of the collection was wonderful! I love Zelda's artwork.

We had a wonderful time getting a close look at the Fitzgeralds and the lives they led, both in Montgomery and abroad. The curator was extremely well informed and had answers to all of our questions and really took the time to show us around. I will definitely recommend this museum to friends.

Video was good and informative. Too many photocopied letters etc which were mostly rather badly explained as to why they were exhibited.
