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.

Fascinating glimpse into the lives of Scott and Zelda (Sayre) Fitzgerald, complete with many original artifacts and located in one of their former homes. The tour guide was informative and new theories on the Fitzgeralds had my mind totally engaged. There were also many of Zelda's original works of art. Wholeheartedly recommend spending several hours at this museum.

This house is around corner from where our son lives. He'd been to a function there and became member. He wanted us to go on house tour; we loved it. Over too soon. Learned much and history came "alive". Please go and you will be so happy you did. Cologne fragrance Scott Fitzgerald wore entire life shown in pictures.

Even if American literature makes you yawn, you'll enjoy a visit to the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. The docents are fun and engaging and their ability to make history come alive for their audiences is amazing. This is a must-see for those visiting Montgomery!

Although the civil rights sites are the usual main attractions for Montgomery tourists, The Fitzgerald home and musuem are a must for anyone interested in literature as well as a another historical and cultural perspective. Our guide, Deric, is studying for his masters degree in literature and history, and was extremely well versed in the Fitzgeralds, both Zelda who grew... More

Our visit to the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum was a highlight of our whole four week trip through the US: it's extremely worth going out of your way to visit it. Our tour guide Willy's passion was matched only by his knowledge, the contextualisation of the Fitzgeralds and his appreciation of their work was particularly masterful. The House itself... More

Wonderful experience! The docent was brilliant. Just the right mix of history, literature, criticism, artifact analysis, and anecdote in his hour-long presentation. An incredible collection of documents, paintings, and memorabilia. Left with a deeper appreciation of this couple's entwined love, art, struggle, and tragedy. Can't wait to re-visit the novels!

In town on business and a day off to soak in the essence of the area a colleague and I visited this house. It is hidden away in an older suburb and provides a time capsule on the past. I did not know much about the Fitzgerald's before and am a lover of history. The passion and enthusiasm of the... More
