My 19 year old daughter & I visited the house. I was pleasantly surprised that AAA members receive a $2/ticket discount. We bought the guided tour & luckily for us, a tour started 15 minutes after our arrival. We looked around the gift shop before the tour. Our tour guide, Jonathan, was very informative. It was very interesting to learn... More

We visited the Margaret Mitchell House on June 27. I had a husband and two teens who had never seen the movie or read the book so originally their interest level for Gone With the Wind was low. However,the guide, Linda Randall, was so awesome, that soon they were as fascinated by Mitchell and what real life inspiration made it... More

My husband and I took this tour on our recent trip to Atlanta. Our tour guide Margaret (she promised that was her real name!) was very knowledgable and a great story teller. She was very captivating and really made me want to learn more about Gone With the Wind. The location was easy to find, very clean and the staff... More

We had an amazing time. Take the tour, it's less than an hour and very informative. I had no idea that Gone With The Wind was published in so many languages.

The tickets were quite expensive, but we enjoyed the tour. I can't remember the name of our tour guide, but he was very knowledgeable and a nice young man. There were people from all over the world in this tour. The apartment is in a home on Peachtree Street. We did not know there is a parking lot across the... More

This site is a great place to tour, if one is either a history, literary, cinema or even a sociology buff!..Beautiful home, in a gorgeous section of town. The tour guide was very thorough w/lots of colorful, detailed info to enhance the stories of the historical, cultural, literary/cinematic, and racial equality impact that GWTW and Margaret Mitchell and her family...

This is an absolute MUST for any Gone With The Wind fans. You can tour the tiny apartment that Margaret Mitchell wrote GWTW in whilst recovering from a broken leg. You can see screen tests of Vivien Leigh and the other actresses who didn't get the part (and see why she did!)

Wish they had a little more to fill up the rooms but over all it was a breathtaking house with a lot to teach visitors.

I loved the house and the narration. The tour guide was great. Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite books, so I was pleased. The lady in the gift shop took the time to recommend her favorite restaurants in town. So nice!

If you loved Gone With the Wind then you will enjoy visiting the home where Margaret Mitchell lived as a young newlywed. The tour was excellent with several films about Margaret's life, the premiere of Gone With the Wind in Atlanta, and Gone With the Wind. There is a gift shop to spend a little time in waiting for the... More
