Dear WaltsNonna,
Complimenting our staff for the excellent jobs they perform is one sure fire way to earn our undying gratitude! Not matter how large the legacy preserved, small house museums need encouragement from their visitors as much as the visitors need information from the staff. We hope that the enjoyment that you had here will bring you back to visit us again.
Thank you for your review, and please let us know if we can help you with anything else Scott and Zelda!
Best,
The Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum Association

this little museum gives a glimpse into Zelda and Scott's life through many letters, photos and other artifacts. A find for researchers, especially Scott's ledger. If you want to know how much he got paid for his short stories, you can check it out here.

Dear ARay456,
Thank you so much for your review of the Fitzgerald Museum! Scott's "financial" records in our copy of his ledger are without a doubt one of the most interesting things about he and Zelda's lives together. Especially the fact that, although he chronicled his income with an almost religious fervor, he NEVER wrote down an expense!
We appreciate that you took the time to come visit us, as well as the time you took to write this review. Please do not hesitate to contact us for anything else Scott and Zelda!
Best,
The Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum Association

I live in Mtg. but had never visited the museum. My sister came from Fort Worth, TX so I brought her. We loved it and the young man who is the curator. He gave us so much good and fun information about the people and things. I am sorry I have not visited before and I will make sure my friends in Mtg. visit.

Dear Margaret,

Thank you for taking a moment to tell the world about the Fitzgerald Museum! Our curators and volunteers strive to make sure that every visitor not only has time to peruse our artifacts, but also to get an "insider's" opinion on specific questions or interests our visitors may have. We are glad that you are taking back positive memories of the museum to Fort Worth and we hope that you will come back to visit us again the next time you are in the area!

Best of luck in the New Year,

The Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum Association

Being a big Fitzgerald fan, discovering this museum was a real treat (we didn't know about it prior to our arrival in Alabama)! Though not big in actual square footage, the space is jam-packed with many wonderful treasures detailing both Zelda and Scott's lives, and the collection is excellently presented. Even my husband, who has somehow made it through life without ever reading Gatsby, found it both enjoyable and educational, so that should speak to how good a job they've done with here. Definitely check it out!

Dear BaronessaR,

Thank you for your review of the Fitzgerald Museum! We are always thrilled to have Fitz Fans under our roof, especially ones who bring their significant others with them to enjoy the story of Scott and Zelda. We hope that our museum will be even more "jam-packed" on your next visit, if not larger space-wise, and we hope that you will never hesitate to contact us with anything Scott or Zelda related!

Happy New Year,

The Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum Association

If you are a fan check it out. Otherwise, I hope there are better places to see in Montgomery. It is a house that the couple supposedly loved in for a very short time. It has some nice photos and a few paintings. If a curator is on hand they can give more details about the couple, especially Zelda. But still, I would only do this if you have run out of fun options in the city or you are such a fan you don't want to miss ANYTHING Zelda.
