“If your interested in local literary writers, this is the place to go.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013 via mobile

The museum is only open from 10-2 p.m.. There is plenty parking behind the house. You will be greated by Willie, who is a pleasure to talk with. He is very passionate about the museum. His knowledge about the Fitzgerald's is great. You watch a video and see all the letters written which are interesting, and get to see several of Zelda's paintings. They also have things you can purchase such as tshirts, coffee mugs, tote bags, magnets and postcards.
The admission is only $5. Well worth it!

“Surprisingly Good !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

This place surprised us. The young man who helped us was extremely knowledgable about the Fitzgeralds. The building is small, but has a lot of exhibits. The only detraction was the older television that was used to show the video. But all in all we really liked this attraction. I left knowing much more about F. Scott and even more about Zelda. There is a small donation required, but it is well worth it.

“Diamond in the Rough...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

The F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery is the only one in the country to focus on this fascinating couple. The Director who gave us the tour was informative, entertaining, and provided a wealth of insight into the Fitzgerald's history and their impact on the culture of the early 20th century. Hope the funding continues to grow so that this treasure can continue to be enhanced. Highly recommend a visit...
