This museum is a wonderful glimpse into the exciting lives of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. If you are lucky enough to have Sara Powell give you the tour, you have hit the jackpot!

I went expecting a tour of a renovated house/museum where the Fitzgeralds lived. The Fitzgeralds lived in this house for only a few months (they were more like vagabonds), although they came back on occasion because Zelda was from Montgomery. There are no furnishings to speak of. The museum is set up downstairs (you don’t go upstairs) and various rooms... More

We discovered this place when researching things to do in Montgomery on a Sunday. This small museum is in a residential area. There is a car park and entrance is free although you can leave a donation. They do guided tours of the place, which we would recommend as it was very interesting. Being British, we had heard of The... More

If you are an F. Scott Fitzgerald fan, and are curious about learning more about him, his wife and author, Zelda, as well as their daughter Scottie, and friends and associates, this is a must go place! The Fitzgeralds lived in the house where the museum is located for year and a half. They say that is the longest time... More

Zelda's orginal home was demolished to make room for interstate so this house where Zelda and Scott lived for a few months in 1931 has been turned into a museum with large number of papers and artifacts. Although most of the events documented did not occur in Montgomery, this is a moving tribute to a daughter of the city.

Make sure you get a guided tour of this hidden gem. If you love Fitzgerald's book or the Roaring 20s you have to visit this home. I felt like I knew this tragic couple personally when we left.

Our trip to this museum was definitely and education. We learned a lot about this couple and their colorful lifestyle. There were artifacts, books, home furnishings, and personal items of both Scott and Zelda in display cases. The home itself is full of rich history too. Our guide told several amusing stories about their lives in this house...the only one... More

We recently drove to the Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Home and Museum in Montgomery and also watched the amazon show Z the beginning of everything. This house was occupied by Scott and Zelda for a short time but was very interesting to see in person. Several memorabilia items on display such as photos,letters,books and some of Zeldas art.

I loved my visit. There are so many interesting historical documents related to the Fitzgerald's. I really learned a lot! Definitely watch the video and take your time reading the documents. A sad but intriguing story.
