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...

Not the most popular of places to visit - but well worth the trip. An amazing collection, wonderfully pleasant staff the day we visited, and lots of information and knowledge. Admission was $10 per person in June of 2015

My husband and I stumbled on this place thanks to this website. We both enjoyed it since we are a bit of history buffs. The video was very informative. It's about 20 mins. Would recommend watching if you have the time. (Video is a bit dated but still very informative) House has some wonderful hidden treasures inside including first editions... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this on a Sunday, simply because the major civil rights related sites tend to be closed those days. Well we were lucky because that is the day that Deric, a grad student with a contagious curiosity about the life of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, happens to be working. He showed us gems we would...

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
