There were artifacts, books, home furnishings, and personal items of both Scott and Zelda in display cases. The home itself is full of rich history too. Our guide told several amusing stories about their lives in this house...the only one... More

This house was occupied by Scott and Zelda for a short time but was very interesting to see in person. Several memorabilia items on display such as photos,letters,books and some of Zeldas art. If you... More

I loved my visit. There are so many interesting historical documents related to the Fitzgerald's. I really learned a lot! Definitely watch the video and take your time reading the documents. A sad but intriguing story.

I'm not sure someone who walks in and doesn't listen to the tour guide can fully appreciate the museum of Zelda and Scott's life. Some fascinating stuff here, but the tour guide pulls it all together. The guide is an option,

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
