I'm not a huge Gone with the Wind fan, buy my mom is! She loved this museum that showcases so many details of the book and movie. I have to admit that it was interesting for me to learn that stories in the book were based on Margaret Mitchell's experiences with her family members who had served in the Civil... More

We went on a Saturday morning. The staff is warm and inviting. The museum is well laid out, very clean, and the text on the displays is easy to read. Plan on about 60-75 minutes to look at everything. A good value for the money.

We're so glad you enjoyed your visit to the museum. The train depot has an interesting history as it was built in 1867 to replace the one destroyed during the Battle of Jonesboro. It's great to be able to use it to house our museum adding in that extra bit of history. We hope to see you in the museum... More

I went to another GWTW museum in Georgia and was not impressed one bit. But this one was clean, well displayed, tons of costumes from the movie and props. It also had a lot of pictures from the time period and explained how the Civil War was and was not depicted correctly in the movie. I loved it!

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.
