The museum has a nice collection of GWTW memorabilia as well as personal items that belonged to Margaret Mitchell. A must see for a true GWTW fan.

It is amazing the amount of information and displays to be seen in this converted old train depot. Be sure and take the bus tour for more stories and to get your bearings on all the other historic sites to see in Jonesboro!

So much history and information is packed into this converted train depot. Learned even more about Gone With The Wind and Margaret Mitchell as we toured all the different exhibits. Especially enjoyed seeing the costumes, and learning about the lives of the actors after they finished with Gone With The Wind. Gained a sense of what opening night must have... More

We were directed to this museum by the guide at Stately Oaks house a mile or so along the road. We found it with no problem and there was enough car parking whilst we were there but you may have a problem at busier periods. We were able to look round relatively quickly and there were some items of interest... More

Movie memorabilia, civil war history, book and author information...all is here at the lovely little museum. Very interesting and enjoyable visit. We spent about 60 minutes in the museum to see everything. (There is also a fantastic women's boutique across the street for some shopping.)

I learned a lot about the town of Jonesboro, GWTW and the Civil war while visiting the Road to Tara museum and bus tour. As a homeowner in this town, I learned a lot and was wishing the bus tour would have had more places that we could stop and visit inside some of the buildings. I would have like... More

The museum is in a really quaint setting in a rail station, in a really quiet little town. Parking was easy and free. The staff were lovely, and made us foreigners feel right at home. The film exhibits were good and fitted in well with some real life historical detail. The museum is small but large enough for a good... More
