This is the idea place for Gone With the Wind information.
Nov 2019
If you want to find out more about Gone With the Wind, visit the Tara Museum in Jonesboro, Georgia. I'm not a Museum type but I really enjoyed myself. A little pricy but worth every penny.

Very historical
Jul 2019 • Friends
My out of town guest really liked the trolley tour and we learned all sorts of historical facts about the civil war. We visited a confederate memorial gravesite, saw the house the KKK ran, and the confederate headquarters house used during the battle of Jonesboro , which many say is now haunted. I’d take the tour again. Below is a picture inside the confederate jail cell we visited.

Very informative, great collection

I really enjoyed this museum. It's bright and full of great information about the movie, characters, actors, and the impact of the film. There are a few original costumes and jewelry. I really enjoyed my visit here, I only wish I could have stayed for the bus tour.

Really cute and well done!
Nov 2019
This museum is located in a beautifully restored train station in historic Jonesboro, GA. The museum is small but really well done and a "must see" if you are a "Gone With The Wind" fan. I highly recommend this along with a tour of Stately Oaks and a stop at the Confederate Cemetery. You'll truly feel like you've had an afternoon being transported back to a time in American history.

A must-see for GWTW Fans!
Sep 2018
This exhibit contains many artifacts and collectibles relating to the premiere of the movie. Items mostly come from a single collection, but it contains a variety of Civil War artifacts, costumes, and movie premiere souvenirs. Any fan of Gone with the Wind book or movie would enjoy this small museum. Spend a liesurely walk through an excitiing event of the past.

GWTW must see
Jul 2019 • Family
My mom is a huge GWTW fan, though not necessarily a Margaret Mitchell fan. We were in Atlanta and she was disappointed that there isn't much if anything to see GWTW related in Atlanta. So we travelled 20 miles south to Jonesboro to this museum. Very easy to get too, it's easy to pass the museum if you don't realize that it's in the train station. Parking was ample on a weekday morning. The museum is behind the gift shop. It relates Civil War and GWTW history, with some real artifacts and some replicas from both. We took probably an hour to see it all and my mom walked around with a smile the whole time. Definitely a must see.

Enjoyable but ...
Jul 2019 • Couples
I have been wanting to go to this museum for a long time and when I did it was a little disappointing to me. I didn't expect the museum to be so small and in a railroad depot. The civil war artifacts and costumes were interesting as well as reading the letters. Hoped to see more set artifacts and photographs and less posters. The people working there in the gift shop were very hospitable. We took the 'Bells and Whistles' trolley ride which was interesting. Happy I got to do this tour.
