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.

The gentleman who greeted us gave a very thorough overview of the home and the former occupants - F. Scott and Zelda. The home is an excellent example of that era and the photographs, letters and articles gives the visitor a real feel for the lives and times of the Fitzgerald's. Well worth the time - seeing/exploring the neighborhood just... More

My three young girls and I spent a great couple of hours here today thanks to Willie who greeted us warmly and provided us with a wonderful narration of the lives of Zelda and Scott.

We spent a very interesting couple of hours touring and chatting with the extremely knowledgeable director. He offered a spontaneous, non-canned look at the couple and clearly knows his material thoroughly. Excellent arrangement of photos, letters, documents, etc

We visited this wonderful "hidden gem" in the Old Cloverdale area of Montgomery and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The curator was so helpful, informative and answered all of our questions. His narrative really added so much to the experience. There were many items, including photographs, personal items and art works by Zelda. The real life story of F. Scott and... More

Went for a party they threw a few years ago. It is a small but very historic place. You can spend about an hour here, I think, but very worth the visit. It is a beautiful house and they have a lot of historic writings.

The Lawyer and his wife, bought this home, got others to donate to this museum, and have built it into a really nice facility, over the years. I donated some work back in the early 1980's, and am proud to have done so to such a great landmark and attraction to Montgomery, AL. area.

I was blown away by the quality and quantity of information. It was incredibly well organized, beginning with a video that gave a good overview of Scott and Zelda's life, and how it intersected with Montgomery and the house. There were then several rooms packed with pictures, letters, galleys, pieces of art and assorted other materials, including F. Scott's correspondence... More
