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. The museum is nicely laid out and you can take your own time looking at and reading each exhibit. There was also a nice video on one exhibit that... More

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

We decided to stop in at the Road to Tara Museum in Jonesboro on our way through Atlanta to Savannah. When we pulled up the cars outside thermometer read 105 degrees, a very hot summer day.

I thought this would just be another cheesy museum containing lots of Scarlett and Rhett memorabilia. It had some original objects from the movie. The film that plays continuously about how the director chose Scarlett is fascinating. It will take you about an hour to read most everything, and there is a lot to see. Highly recommend this museum and... More
