This house, once rented by the the Fitzgeralds, is currently a small museum, filled with artifacts and copies of interesting letters, journals, and artwork of this fascinating couple. The guide and the video presentation provided much interesting history.

Great museum, and apparently the only museum dedicated to Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald! Definitely recommend if you’re in Montgomery

I watched the video and had a wonderful tour. The museum has a lot of neat artifacts of their life together. A highlight was viewing Zelda's artwork.

I thought I knew a lot about both of them but a quick visit to the only FitzGerald Museum in the world proved my ignorance. Zelda was far more talented than I ever imagined! Her artwork is excellent and her paperdolls amazing. Her husband was...More

Definitely worth your time and effort. Very insightful and director and staff totally open to questions and very informative. Also AirBnb has rooms in house for nights. You can stay where F. Scott and Zelda lived.
