I was not expecting much as some reviewers in the past said to skip this as it was just a "room" and that Margaret Mitchell's furnishings were not inside, but this tour was well worth the admission fee. If you pay the full fee, which is only several dollars more, you can see the Swan House and tour the gardens... More

Nice history of Margaret Mitchell and we especially enjoyed the video in the adjacent building showing the background of how the movie was made. Really interesting.

Linda our tour guide made the visit very interesting, although I have never read the book I will be getting a copy when I return to U.K. Margaret Mitchell must have been a very strong willed woman at such a young age and the book is based on true fact of what happened in the Civil War, only the names...

Admission to the Atlanta History museum also takes you here. We learned about a very interesting lady and saw where she lived for a time before she made it "big". If you like history and learning about someone who is a bit eccentric then stop here for about 1.5 hours

I've always loved Gone With the Wind - the book and the movie. This was fun and informative. Got a copy of GWTW stamped from Margaret Mitchell's house for me and another for a friend. Glad we went!

This is a great experience. We got more out of our tour than we ever expected. It is free for military. Take an hour or two and visit.

Had a great tour - my guide was knowledgeable and asked questions to involve me in the tour. I had expected a quick tour of the house with a scripted tour, but got much more!

Very interesting historical site, reasonable cost with free parking and an excellent tour provided by Margaret. Thanks! Enjoyed the Gone With the Wind movie displays in the adjacent building. Considering that the movies Hollywood interpretation of Atlanta during the civil war was less than accurate, this tour provides some real insight into true history, the book and author.
