The story of how she wrote the book, got it published and saw it made into the film was also explained. There is also a 2... More

This is billed as the Margaret Mitchell "House", but she only lived in a small apartment there. None of her original furniture or memorabilia are there either. It was interesting, but glad I paid senior rate, not the full price.

This was a very worthwhile visit while in Atlanta. Went on a Sunday, so parking was easy right across the street at the credit union. All of the staff here were top notch and friendly. Exhibits are small, but the guided tour brings this all to life. Our group was guided by Alex and he did a great job interacting... More

Nice older southern style home. Of course it's all about the famous book and movie though. For architecture and the book and movie buffs, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

The success of Gone with the Wind juxtaposed with the modesty of the original Margaret Mitchell House is the allure of this attraction. Great for Atlanta that this building has been preserved and is catering to the knowledgeable tourists. Very few locals even know it exists. Relatively out of place now as the skyscrapers have popped up in close proximity... More

I am a GWTW fan, and I was trying not to get my hopes up too high about this visit, because I had heard conflicting opinions about it. No need to worry at all! We had a fabulous tour guide, who understand so very well the power of a story and who had us all spellbound. We learned a lot... More

Located near the centre of Atlanta, the Margaret Mitchell House is the house where Margaret Mitchell wrote "Gone with the Wind". The site is part of the Atlanta History Centre, an tickets for the house come with the fee for the Centre. There is a self-guided tour, however we took the one hour guided tour.

Well laid out exhibits, plenty of information about the author, the book and the movie. The tour took about 40 minutes and Amy who conducted the tour was a mine of information, very well presented.

My wife is a huge fan of Gone with the Wind so I decided to suck it up and go; to be honest I didn't expect to like it but it was actually very interesting.

The Margaret Mitchell House is more than just a history of "Gone with the Wind". It is a fairly complete history of a full and great life. Plus, it is the actual location where she wrote "Gone with the Wind".
