“A Real Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This museum is really a home that Zelda and F.Scott Fitzgerald lived in. There are lots of letters, photos, and paintings of Zelda's that give a real insight to their lives. We had a wonderful young tour guide who had a vast knowledge on several topics relating to Zelda, her family, and her relationship with her husband. If you enjoy the writing of Fitzgerald and the story of his life with Zelda, I highly recommend this for a visit

“A must see for fans of the Fitzgeralds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

What an amazing experience learning more about the Firzgeralds!! Staff is excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Tucked in charming, beautiful neighborhood & easy parking.

Lots of Zelda's art & letters on display along with artifacts. Very genuine museum with staff that are truly passionate about what they do.

Absolutely worth the $5, bought several postcards as well!!

“Fun place for Fitzgerald fans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Although small and modest, this is a very pleasant literary historical venue. The young man who moderates brief tours is extremely knowledgable and helpful; donation asked is $5 per person, quite reasonable. I recommend this museum for literary persons and/or Fitzgerald fans.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I like small, quirky museums. This is not a gorgeous preserved or restored home; it's really a tribute to the Fitzgeralds as artists and people. Willie, the docent/director there, has a particular passion for Zelda Fitzgerald and his tour was informative concerning her life and personality, as well as that of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The few rooms are full of photographs, personal effects and letters. A short video is also shown.

This would especially be appreciated by literary fans, but is also interesting to learn about the glamor couple of their day and their too-short lives.
