Not having any real interest in Mitchell or GWTW I would not come for the purpose of visiting the house. Meow ever while in Atlanta it is an interesting place to visit.

This is the house where Margaret Mitchell wrote the famed novel "Gone With The Wind." She lived in an apartment on the first floor and the desk where she wrote the novel is a part of the scenario. There are many momentos of her life, the actors/actresses in the movie and those who shared in her glory following the success... More

I am a huge fan of Gone with the Wind. This is a must if you are a literature lover. It is amazing to get some history and stories in the room where Margaret Mitchell wrote her famous novel.

Wasn't expecting much from this visit but was very pleasantly surprised. A very enthusiastic guide gave us a lot of background about Margaret Mitchell and the her home. The film describing the making of 'Gone with the Wind' was interesting but be warned it feels nearly as long as the film itself, running for 2 hours.If you have plenty of... More

I went to the Margaret Mitchell House on a whim, simply because my visit to the Atlanta History center admission price, included tickets to the MMH. I went because I love old homes. I was really glad I went, learned a lot about Margaret Mitchell, the Gone with the wind premier and Atlanta than I even thought I would. The... More

If you are a fan of gone with the wind, you will love this. Tour tells a lot about Margaret Mitchell- prob more than you need to know-- but very interesting. Photos and memorabilia upstairs are great

The history behind the house was pretty interesting as well as the efforts taken to save it. You will spend about an hour here tops. It isn't exactly her house, but is the place where she stayed at while writing the story. The tour guide was very engaging and had extensive knowledge of the subject. It is definitely worth the...

I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm glad we visited the house. This is not your typical 1-2 family house. It's a three story apartment building. She lived on the first floor. The first floor is set up as it was when she lived there.You will also see some interesting objects belonging to Ms. Mitchell. The remaining floors are... More

Enjoyed this as we got a free ticket visiting the Atlanta History Center. We did the 45 minute private tour. It was interesting but a little disappointing as they actually have nothing of Margaret Mitchell's except for the house itself. Still, for a GWTW fan it gave me chills!

Nice collection of information about Margaret Mitchell and "Gone with the Wind" We joined a tour, which was totally worth it as the narrator had lots of information and enthusiasm for the subject. Entry was part of price paid for Swan House.
