It's a raw, beautiful place to surround yourself with the lives and works of Scott & Zelda, to step ehere they once stepped. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about everything that has to do with them, including the numerous artefacts that you won't see anywhere else! Letters, clothing, paintings, books that belonged to them etc. The tour is great and... More

We took an abbreviated version of the normal 60 to 90 minute tour since we were with a 16 month old. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. She provided all sorts of great insight on the lives of both F Scott and Zelda. Did a great job of mixing in the artifacts and the rooms to explain the... More

We were going to be near Montgomery today and looked for sites to see. We were delighted to learn that this museum, once home to F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald was here! We thoroughly enjoyed the fascinating tour led by a very bright, young, articulate, and attractive writer. Lots of interesting personal artifacts to see! One could spend hours here... More

I really enjoyed my visit here. The museum is set in a previous home of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald which gives the place a lovely atmosphere. All visits are done with a tour guide - mine was excellent. The museum houses a varied collection of letters, writings, paintings, books and artefacts either produced or collected by the Fitzgeralds. I haven't... More

If you visit make sure you take the guided tour. Our docent was so knowledgeable and kept giving us fun facts we had not heard before. Very timely visit because we learned there are new movies about Zelda in the works along with a few other thing coming out. Be sure to check out Zelda's paintings while there.

Day-Trip: Museum was extremely interesting and provides a plethora of information and fascinating artifacts, all inside a building with a genuine connection to F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Complete with photographs, artifacts, etc. A must-see.

Loved this place. Walked around twice just to make sure I saw every thing. If you're a history buff, I highly recommend this stop if you're in the Montgomery area.

If you’re remotely interested in either of the Fitzgeralds and you’re in Montgomery, you should visit. The tour is very good. There are plenty of photos and other interesting memorabilia about the Fitzgeralds that you can see after the tour. Allow at least 1-1/2 hours.
