I enjoyed this tour very much. I have read Gone with the Wind many times, but never knew much about Margaret Mitchell. I didn't know that she lived in a small apartment while writing the book, that Rhett Butler was based on her first husband, (who abandoned her)) , that she gave many scholarships to black medical students, that she...

My friends and I visited the Margaret Mitchell House and had a fabulous time with our children. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Margaret's life and the history of the house, the area, as well as Gone with the Wind. Miss Margaret, our guide was simply an amazing, gifted storyteller. We were so sad when our tour was up. We could... More

Kind of high priced, not a lot to see. A historically significant building, drive by instead. Wasn't sure what I was expecting but somehow felt let down by this one.

I have driven by the Mitchell house many times but never went in. I am glad I did today. The volunteer led tour guide was an incredible story teller. I learned so much and was entertained by her true tales.

When I visited the History Center, I was given a free ticket to the Margaret Mitchell House. Best free ticket I have gotten in awhile. I always assumed that the whole house was hers but learned that she lived in this tiny apartment on the first floor. They run tours every couple of hours (which is included) and you will... More

This was a good experience - it is something of a rite of passage in Atlanta. The house is very well managed and taken care of and the staff are lovely. I would recommend a visit while you are there.

We visited here in July, 2014. If you like d the book Gone with the Wind, you will love visiting the house where Margaret Mitchell wrote the book. My daughter and I used the City Pass to visit with my friend and her son! Our guide was wonderful. She led us through the rooms and also allowed us to visit... More

Not a fan of the movie nor a student of history, but the story of how GWTW came to be is interesting. Our docent was knowledgeable and full of fun facts. The house is small, so the tour group needs to be small so that you aren't standing on each other.
