I really knew nothing about Margaret Mitchell (other than the fact that she wrote 'Gone With The Wind') before I visited the House for the first time. After taking the tour and learning about Ms. Mitchell's family, her triumphs over adversity and her incredible acts of philanthropy, I became a huge fan. In fact, I even worked at the MMH for a while a couple of years ago. The tour is a really neat glimpse not only into an amazing life, but into the complex history of the city of Atlanta and complicated race an gender issues. Very much worth a trip.
Pros: fascinating, surprising
Cons: a bit expensive
