Every April and May, experience the live production of To Kill A Mockingbird. Excellent cast of the profile Monroeville. First act takes place outside and act 2 is in the courtroom. It was riveting. The children were great.

We have wanted to visit the courthouse for a long time. It is important to note the movie was not filmed at the courthouse. In fact, none of the movie was filmed in Monroeville. Harper Lee based her book on the town in which she...More

Fantastic welcome from the staff in this attraction, faithfully preserving the courthouse which was the setting for Harper Lee's book "To Kill A Mockingbird" (and was recreated elsewhere for the Gregory Peck film). Interesting period artefacts bring bits of the story to life.
