If History is your intellectual interest, then you must visit this Old House, Margaret Mitchell won a Pulitzer Price by writing the well known novel "GONE WITH THE WING" that later became a movie. The House shows the Old Typewriter She used, and has a Museum Store.

It is a small museum`but it has a good little tour and there are two exhibits on the making of "Gone with the wind" and its premier. The address is on Peachtree, but the entrance is around the corner. the exhibit has a painting that was in the movie and the museum itself is her apartment with furniture etc. Margaret... More

It was great to see "The Dump" the tiny apartment where this great novel was written. There was so much info on the stars of the movie and interesting facts about Margaret Mitchell

First off, she lived in an apartment, not a house. It's 3 rooms that belonged to MM. But you can tour the rest of the house. It was okay... Wouldn't take young kids (we have a 1 year old) on the tour offered. In fact, I wouldn't recommend the "tour" even if you didn't have kids. If you're a GWTW... More

I don't know why I''ve never made the time to visit this beautiful piece of history. I've always enjoyed Gone With the Wind, but nothing like the actual history behind Margaret Mitchell's life during the time she wrote this story. Quaint, sacrificial story, and such a wonderful woman to donate to the local Black college and her project to teach... More

The staff was super friendly on this visit. We took a friend who is a fan, but had never been to the MMH. She loved it! We took photos with the doors from Tara. We saw the portrait of Scarlett in the blue dress. We loved reading the information upstairs about the premiere of the movie. It was an absolutely... More

Yes, it took me an entire lifetime to watch Gone With the Wind, but once I started reading the book, I was so engaged that I finished it just within a few days. Still, after reading reviews of The Margaret Mitchell House, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go. For the price, I just got the impression that there... More

We visited on a whim and were very pleasantly surprised at the amount of information available. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and well informed and made it fun. The actual front door to Tara was on display while we were there, which was a nice treat. There is a long extensive movie that runs depicting the making of Gone with... More

Trust me, this helped me to the next stage of being a GWTW fan -- I loved the House and visiting the souvenir shop (which I friend keep my budget in control -- otherwise ....I would buy everything). Loved it.
