This historic house honors novelist F. Scott, best known for "The Great Gatsby," and his wife, Zelda, artist and author. The museum operates out of the last surviving home they lived in during their lives together. The structure was saved from demolition in 1986.

I'm an English major, so I was already keen to see the home of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. But the museum and accompanying tour really surpassed my expectations by giving us wonderful insight into the tumultous life of the literary pair - even my science-minded girlfriend enjoyed the stop! Put aside 20 mins for the introductory video (watched on a... More

Really this should be called the Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. That's because her father's position as chief justice on the Alabama Supreme Court is what had anchored them here; it was here that Scott Fitzgerald was stationed as an Army officer, was invited to a dance at the local country club, and was smitten with the young Zelda. The museum is... More

We didn't have as much time as we hoped when we got to the museum, but we were there just in time for a tour to start. We enjoyed the tour, then spent additional time perusing the many, many pieces inside. We'll definitely be back so we can read every word and properly enjoy every painting. An absolute delight!

We were driving from New Orleans to Atlanta and stopped off here late Sunday afternoon. I called before getting off the highway since it was near closing time. The very kind museum attendant told me he'd keep the museum open late, if need be, since I was on my way. We ended up getting a very personalized, comprehensive tour of... More

our book group travelled from Florida to visit this museum...had read the book Z A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and many of us also read or re-read many of Scott's works...we thoroughly enjoyed the introductory video and Willie Thompson gave us an animated and detailed tour on a very busy day for him (the day before their big gala)...while we...

Deric, a graduate student who only works there on Sundays was indeed informative and engaging while bringing to life two icons of the Jazz Era, F Scott and Zelda. A veritable treasure trove of personal memorabilia this small museum makes a huge impact in preserving the memory and works of these two individuals for generations to come. Whether visiting or...

My family and I visited Scott's museum, it was very informative. I am a loyal fan of Scott's greatest book "the great Gatsby". Our tour guide was great, he started us with an informative video about Scott and Zelda's life, and then he came back right on time to give us the official tour from the beginning to the end...

This museum is in a very quiet and nice neighborhood. The tour is exceptional with artifacts and letters from the couple. Is a gem that you should visit in Montgomery.

Exceptional tour, video, artifacts and letters nicely assembled in an ordinary home briefly occupied by F. Scott and wife Zelda Fitzgerald around 1930. Derrick, our your delightful tour guide , tied many of the pieces together with many stories about the writer's rapid climb and equally rapid decline after the Great Depression as well as his connection to Mongtomery which...

The artifacts in the house, letters, galleys, art, etc, are well organized and displayed. It gives a great window into the lives of F. Scott and Zelda's life, and how and why Montgomery and the house played an important part in their lives. The house is frankly nothing special, but what's in it is. It was well worth the admission...
