Cinephiles and sightseers can immerse themselves in the historical scenery of Jonesboro that inspired Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind while gleaning film facts and admiring memorabilia. During the Southern Belles and Whistles Tour, Tara enthusiasts can examine original movie props, scratch and sniff costume reproductions, and calculate the hypotenuse of Vivienne Leigh’s eyebrow. Climb aboard a motorized stagecoach for an exploration of a Confederate cemetery, the site of the battle of Jonesboro, and the Warren House, which served as a Union hospital during said skirmish. The tour concludes with a visit to the Stately Oaks Plantation, an ornate 1839 home that features a 7-acre park and a recipe for creating Clark Gable–strength hair gel.

Brains can soak up knowledge of the Civil War and Antebellum years starting at 11 a.m. Monday–Saturday. Complete the tour in one day, or visit the Stately Oaks Plantation on a separate occasion.

The museum was filled with many near artifacts from Gone with the Wind as well as historical items from Civil War Battle of Jonesboro. The bus tour around town with tour guide Gary was amazing and informative.
