Open at 8:30 AM this museum is open early enough to get a good start on the day. Many displays of items related to the movie "Gone With The Wind" and historical artifacts related to the Civil War.

The old railroad depot is a great place to start a tour through the history, sights and sounds of gone with the wind. A lovely collection of movie memorabilia from around the world as well as props, costumes and a whole lot of dolls and paraphernalia dealing with this classic, we also did the tour and it was a really...

Since we had to escape the east due to Hurricane Matthew, we went West. After visiting some relatives we decided to go to Jonesboro to see the Road to Tara Museum- something def on my bucket list. It was really amazing. The entire museum was reminiscent of the actors and movie itself. As I went through the quaint museum, the... More

Unless you are a huge fan of gone with the wind don't bother, and even then I'm not sure this is the best place to visit. It has a small "museum" with lots of replica costumes, posters and screens showing bits of the film but nothing of great interest.

The layout of this museum is very well thought out and we enjoyed looking at the costumes, autographs, model house, various posters, etc. while the Legends documentary played in the background. The souvenir shop has a great selection of memorabilia as well and the ladies there were very friendly and knowledgeable. If you are debating between the Marietta GWTW museum... More

My daughter is both a history and english buff and was dying to visit this museum and take the bus tour during a recent visit. She (and we) were not disappointed.

As a huge GWTW fan, I was so excited to go to the museum and the GWTW bus tour. It did not disappoint. The only negative thing I could say is the air conditioner went out in the museum but that did not stop me! I was the only one on the bus tour and it was so interesting to... More
