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.

I am a huge fan of Gone With The Wind, but I had no idea how much memorabilia was made honoring the movie. This is a self guided tour that won't take too much time, but it was interesting and worth the nominal entry fee.

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.
