We are sorry you could not come in. Scott and Zelda lived everywhere very briefly. Inside the Museum a visitor learns their story in detail--in particular, you may have been interested to learn that they averaged 5 months per stop. Also, only four houses remain...More

Well, I really don't know if the museum rates a 1 or a 5 -- it was closed "due to a private event." Not sure if I'll ever be in Montgomery again -- so it was certainly disappointing that the museum did not open according...More

This house, once rented by the the Fitzgeralds, is currently a small museum, filled with artifacts and copies of interesting letters, journals, and artwork of this fascinating couple. The guide and the video presentation provided much interesting history.

This is not a large museum, but has a lot of interesting information about Scott and Zelda. The attendant was very helpful and knowledgeable and the time spend was well spend.
