I loved all the GWTW memorabilia & replications. Some of the most elaborate scene settings I have ever seen. I also was impressed with the historical pictures and the vast amount of information in regards to the battle at Jonesboro.

This small museum is located in downtown Jonesboro in a small train depot that was relocated here after the original wooden building burned during the Civil War. You can still see the original stone walls on the interior that were reassembled here. The museum gives you a nice pamphlet to follow along while touring the museum. It is full of... More

We loved it! It brought back all the memories from the movie. It's wonderful with the costumes and trinkets. They have dolls and dresses and posters. They have great collectibles. We got some great souvenirs. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Worthwhile for Windys who just want to relive the story a little longer and learn about the making of it. It is a fairly small museum that also ties into the historical backdrop. Charming little souvenir store with friendly workers. Most of the props are recreated but there are some vintage ones from the set.

This museum is small but loaded with all kind of interesting history about the movie. To read through everything and view the items takes at least 2 hours. There are original items and replicas of the clothing, jewels, and history of the movie. Interesting facts about the film and a great gift shop at the end. If you are a... More
