I am not a big gone with the wind person however there is a simplicity about this museum that's very charming. Yes it's small but beyond gone with the wind they actually have history about the battles that took place nearby and a lot to do with the Civil War so definitely have some interesting facts. Literally you can do... More

This is a lovely little museum which we visited at the start of a 12 day Gone With The Wind tour. It is crammed with The film's memorabilia. Unfortunately, its smallness is its problem. A much bigger venue would allow the exhibits to be spread out and displayed better. I was with a coach party of 50 so it was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our museum. We do have a smaller space to work with as we're in an 1867 train depot, so we try to do as much with the space as we can. We're so glad we were one of the stops on your group tour and that you enjoyed your visit and the... More

Was passing through Atlanta heading to Warm Springs when I picked up a brochure on the road about the museum. Decided to make a quick stop since we were close by. I believe that Jonesboro was where Margaret Mitchell's grandparents lived. She drew on the history of the area when writing Gone with the Wind and thus the Jonesboro connection.... More

We had a wonderful visit at this very well maintained museum. The staff was exceptionally friendly to talk to. Very many artifacts are packed into a small space. I could wander there for hours. If you're a Gone with the Wind fan, make this a must-see destination.

If you're a GWTW fan (book and/or film), you should really stop here. It's a short drive outside of Atlanta, in a very rural, charming town. They've converted an old train station and it's lovely. The price of admission is reasonable, as are the souvenir prices. The displays are marvelous. I had such an enjoyable time.

If you are a fan of Gone with The Wind I highly recommend this museum. It is located in Scarlett's "home town" of Jonesboro. I especially enjoyed the part about the Atlanta premiere of the movie. Contained a lot of photos that I have never seen before.

The museum was awesome, the staff there are very nice and helpful, and also LOADED with information. The tour guide on the bus tour was extremely nice as well!
