A must for all fans of The Great Gatsby.

This was a very interesting house to see. As a fan of Scott Fitzgerald, it was a place I wanted to see. It is a typical house of the period, with old pieces from the period.

This is a wonderful experience, and very educational. The extensive photos and articles from the family bring them to life! The curator is a wealth of knowledge! It was so much fun!

I visited the museum during a brief stopover in Montgomery. I am a Fitzgerald fan so would have been happy with just about anything but the house was a revelation. I was lucky enough to have a personalised guide through the rooms. The place has great atmosphere. Is in a lovely setting, and contains many surprises even for those who... More

It was interesting to learn about this museum and the Fitzgeralds. It is housed in a home that was subdivided into 4 apts (after the Fitgeralds lived there). The museum occupies 2 of the 4 apts. Please be aware that it is $10/person admittance fee, and the Fitzgeralds did not live there all that long, but one of the reasons... More

The museum was a delight for us, one being a Zelda fan and the other an F.Scott fan. Lots of memorabilia: First editions, Examples of Zelda's artwork, Letters, Photos,etc. Our guide was very enthusiastic and well-informed.

One of the best places to visit in all of Montgomery! Be sure to stop by if you love The Great Gatsby or anything else Fitzgerald wrote!

Our tour guide, Molly, was so well informed! She was able to answer all our literary and "personal" questions regarding Scott and Zelda's lives. The house itself has some very unique items well worth viewing (including first edition prints of Fitzgerald's novels and tons of personal photos, intimate notes, and handwritten correspondence). The gardens were also very pretty and this... More

Nestled in the charming Cloverdale community, this experience was a great one for a Fitzgerald lover. Although the main floor is the only space to tour, it is packed full of F Scott and Zelda's history. Molly, our hostess, was a gem. She was knowledgable, friendly, and a joy to chat with. Don't miss this!

This was so much fun! The staff is knowledgeable and the collection is wonderful. Students of literature and 1920s cultural history will find something to love here. We had a beautiful visit! I highly recommend it.
