$7 bucks for museum and $21 bucks for the tour! Missed the tour only two per day. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly! You can look through the museum in 30-45 minutes.

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.
