Came all the way from Ireland and visited this historical gem. Thoroughly enjoyable. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. A lovely visit.

I loved this , especially the film showing the casting and making of the film. The insight into the social history of the time is fascinating, especially the fact that the black actors could not attend the premier. My husband however fell asleep.

Would have liked more time in the residence on our own between tours, but guide was excellent. MLK exhibit was a nice bonus. Goid selection in gift shop.

I'm from near Atlanta and I kept meaning to visit, but of course it took an out of town friend to get me there! Well worth the ticket price - we visited the Atlanta History Center (also well worth a visit!) We parked across the...More

Although not that much to see, the apartment where M. Mitchell wrote her book and the exhibit on the making of the film are worth one's time. The guide was informative and friendly, having us sit in the living room where MM wrote her book,...More

Gone With the Wind is a favorite book and movie. The tour was absolutely ruined by the silly, overbearing, and useless tour guide. So much interesting information could have been conveyed, but he was so silly and kept repeating the same phrases over and over....More
