My mother and I went to the Margaret Michell House & Museum over the weekend and were not very impressed. We tried to pay our admission with two twenty dollar bills and they didn't have change forced us to pay with a credit card. I would think that a tourist attraction would be equipped with plenty of change for cash paying tourist. The tour of the house was very plain. We went to tow palor rooms that only had pictures hanging up on the walls. We then went to apartment #1 which was nice and interesting, but it was way too small to have 20 people croweded into the living room. Being crowed into that room didn't allow you to see everything in the room. I felt that we were really rushed through the entire tour so that a wedding reception could take place.

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.
