Gone with the Wind Museum
The Gone with the Wind Museum in Marietta, Georgia, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the epic novel-turned-movie. Though small, the museum’s rare signature items and memorabilia celebrate the iconic tale and 1939 film. A top piece is the Bengaline silk honeymoon gown worn by Vivien Leigh, who portrayed Scarlett O’Hara in the film. 

The Basics
Opened in 2003, the Gone with the Wind Museum features an impressive collection of artifacts from Gone with the Wind. Memorabilia from the iconic film lines the halls, and the exhibits transport visitors back to the Civil War and Reconstruction eras. In addition to Leigh’s gown, noteworthy objects include author Margaret Mitchell’s personal copies of the novel, rare publicity pieces, and the personal script of an actress in the film. The gift store sells collector’s items—and, of course, copies of Gone with the Wind.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is an absolute must for Gone with the Wind fans as well as those with an interest in antebellum Georgia history. It’s not the best choice for children, who may find it uninteresting.

  • Student and senior discounts are available.
  • The museum doesn’t have food services but there are restaurants within walking distance.

When to Get There
