A very lovely and informative peek into the former lives of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. See the couple as more than famous writers but as people with real hopes and struggles, as parents to daughter Scottie and the friendships and other interests they held dear. This tour was excellent!

My friend from the UK and I came to visit. It was an interesting museum. We knew very little other than the books and supposedly a grand lifestyle. We both found it very interesting and loved the museum and exhibits! Tour guide was very informative:-)

Definitely not the most important or impressive experience of Montgomery museums, but it certainly provided greater knowledge and understanding of the Fitzgeralds, who only lived in this house for 8 months.

This house was occupied by the Fitzgeralds for a while in the 1930s. Scott and Zelda each completed a book here. The museum occupies the first floor of the home and is full of memorabilia from the Fitzgeralds. The young woman who conducted the tour of the house was very informative, and even though we arrived late, she went back... More

We visited the Fitzgerald House on our way home after a nice little getaway. The house is a treasure trove of Fitzgerald history and artifacts. Our tour guide was exceptional - well informed about Fitzgerald history and intimately knowledgeable about Fitzgerald's literature and how it pertained to their lives. A highly recommended stop in Montgomery

As a retired teacher who often taught Fitzgerald' s books & stories, this was a great experience. The lady who led the tour was well informed and presented it well. It was almost like she was talking about family. Loved seeing so many of Zelda' s paintings. Very well done.

Do not be discouraged for visiting because of its location or the appearance of the house. It's the content that matters and once inside you will be rewarded . I am not an student of their lives or accomplished, however after visit the museum I am very happy that I did make the visit. Well organized and the tour director... More
