I have been in love with this book since I was 10 (yes it took me a couple years to read it at that age). I have since read it multiple times and seen the movie countless. With that kind of personal tie- I was so excited to see The Mitchell house! It did not disappoint. I learned more than... More

Was quite an experience to actually be in the very house that Margaret Mitchell lived in when she wrote her famous book. I was especially interested in the actual making of the movie "Gone With the Wind". Many of my questions were answered. I was sad to learn that Ms. Mitchell died so young.

Not worth it by itself. I was there last week. It complemented an exibit about the making of Gone with the Wind. Also her apartment is only open with a guided tour,so you either wait at the gift shop or another area that shows a little film about how they casted for the role of Scarlet.

Margaret, in this case is the tour guide. Yes, she has the same name as Margaret Mitchell which just adds to the experience. Margaret was a great tour guide. She interacted with the visitors and told stories regarding the apartment. I was there as part of my Gone With the Wind tour. Visiting the apartment where Mitchell wrote her novel... More

We stopped at the Margaret Mitchell house on our way through Atlanta on a road trip. I am a Gone With the Wind fan and have read the book many times. I did not know very much about Margaret Mitchell herself, however. This is an interesting stop, although we were both expecting that the whole house was her home. As... More

I went to a book review at "the Margaret Mitchell House," actually a fairly recent, cookie-cutter structure. I would like to see the house itself, but apparently do not expect that you will when advertised as such.

Unless you like rude staff and long waits, don't go! I have never given a negative review until today. Don't waste your money. They tell you one time to tour then make you wait longer. The staff was very unhelpful. Atlanta has to many wonderful things to see to waste your time here.

I enjoyed the guided tour and got to know quite a lot about Margaret Mitchell, the author of the book 'Gone With The Wind'. The tour of the apartment lasts for about 30 minutes. The lady guiding us through the apartment was knowledgeable and was patient in answering questions from the tourists. The entry fee for this attraction is relatively... More

We walked into the entrance of the Margaret Mitchell House and were greeted by staff only because it was their obligation to do so. No attempts at southern hospitality or efforts to engage myself or my daughters, who are new "Gone with the Wind" fans, ages 10 & 8 was attempted. Luckily, the entrance is also a gift shop, so...

Great feeling to stand in the room where Gone With the Wind was written. Amazing how much of the building still exists from the 1920s.
