While visiting friends in Georgia, we went to Jonesboro and visited this small museum and I loved it. The ladies working there were a delight to talk to. We did do the bus tour and while interesting, I don't think it was worth the price.

Lived in the area for over 26 years and this was my first visit to the museum. What was I waiting for? Went with friends from out of state. They loved it.

This is a nice little museum, emphasis on little. It has some neat information, even of you're not a huge Gone with the wind fan. It cost $7. It'll probably take less than an hour (unless you get sucked into watching the movie).

Although by most standards this museum is small, it is huge gen it comes to providing insight into the actors in Gone With The Wind as well as local Civil War information. There are quite a few dresses and other items from the movie.

This is the best Gone with the Wind Museum I have ever seen. The self walking tour through the entire facility was enlightening and fact based. My family loved it.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed. We are a small museum located in a historic train depot, so we have limited space to work with. We strive to make a great experience for all of our visitors and we do appreciate your feedback.

Great place to spend the afternoon! Take the bus tour for Gone With the Wind - our guide was so informative! He brough history to life. Phyllis was so gracious in the museum. I hope to visit again soon!

Weekday is less crowded. Make sure you do the bus tour before going to the museum. Mitchell house is in Midtown Atlanta and everything is about 30 mins south of the city.

The bus tours take about an hour and fifteen minutes, but can take up to an hour and a half with an optional stop at Arts Clayton Gallery. The museum is self-guided, so that's at your own pace.
