The ‘Gone with the Wind Museum’ is located at 472 Powder Springs Street, Marietta, GA. To get there, you first go to the Historic Brumby Hall and Gardens, which are south of downtown Marietta. Once you are there, take a west turn into the entrance of the Marietta Hotel and Conference Center, and then a right turn into its northern parking lot. If you park in the northeast corner, you will be able to walk a path leading you to Brumby Hall, where the museum is located.

Brumby Hall was established in 1851, and the Gone with the Wind Museum that it houses showcases the privately-owned collection of Dr. Christopher Sullivan – who is credited as having the world’s most complete Gone with the Wind artifact collection. Entering the museum is like being transported back in time, all the way back to the 1930s. Any Gone with the Wind relic you could think of, you will find it here.

The educational side of the museum exhibits rare foreign editions of the novel originally owned by the author Margaret Mitchell, the original movie script and the contracts signed by the cast, the conceptual artwork for the film, and a special tribute to the African American cast members. Hardcore film fans will be delighted to see original props and costumes, including the silk honeymoon gown Vivien Leigh wore. You can even take a bit of Gone with the Wind home with you – the museum’s gift shop has merchandise ranging from soaps and perfumes to music boxes and paper dolls!

The museum is open to visitors from 10am to 5pm every Monday to Saturday – with the sole exception of national holidays. Admission fees are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and students, and $5 per person for groups of 15 or more people. If you are a fan of Gone with the Wind book or movie – or both – this a place definitely worth a detour!
