The Edward Inman "Swan" House is a mansion in Atlanta, Georgia. It was designed by Philip T. Shutze and built in 1928 for Edward and Emily Inman. The house is currently part of the Atlanta History Center, and it has been featured in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2.
Often described as "eclectic," the Swan House features an amalgamation of several different architectural styles. As a whole, the house adheres to Renaissance revival, but inspiration is drawn from sources across multiple time periods and geographic locations. Italian and English classicism were blended to suit the needs and interests of the wealthy twentieth-century residents.

This is a cool house, but a lot has changed over the years. Some of the rooms have been stripped bare and repainted for shooting movies. For those that love history, check out the Herndon Home Museum not too far away. The collection there is more complete and the story is inspiring.

This was a cool place to visit. Took my wife here on a date since she likes old historical homes. The park is great too, quiet stroll in the middle of the city, we loved it. The staff at the Swan House is very friendly and offer lots of details about this historical place.

Arrived too late to tour the house. Nice gift shop.

We got a "little" lost as to when/where to get our tickets. They had a private event happing in the cabin by the entrance and the guy that was directing the event guests from the house visitors sent us to the house. When we got there, from the back as the parking lot is closer to the back of the house, we were greeted by a gentleman who told us we needed tickets (no kidding!) And we could only get them at the visitor's center. Guess what? It was 3:15 and they close at 4! We ran to the visitor's center and got our tickets. When we made it back we were told that our tickets don't give is access to "behind the scenes" tour. At that time we just wanted to see the house - we would love to take the extra tour but we couldn't make it back because we would need to purchase the extra at the visitor's center. Long story short: start your your from the visitor's center and ask, ask, ask! Ask about what they offer!!

Beautiful house! Amazing gardens! I loved seeing what it looks like now, and how they changed it for the Hunger Games movie. Well worth the entry fee! Go early in the day when fewer visitors are there! Ask the living character guide for a song or tune in the piano, and she's happy to oblige! Great stories about the collections in the home! (Don't just look, ask! You'll be pleasantly surprised at all you learn.)

Fun historic place with guides dressed in time period clothing in character! Had a great time chatting with them and getting a good sense of the time period and history. Great place to take visitors and loved walking around the ground.

If you are in Atlanta I would say this is a must. My wife and I visited this house in the morning before it was open and took great pictures. Later on we went through the Atlanta History Center and toured the house and surrounding attractions. It's a beautiful house and a reasonable price.

Great architecture and they let you roam the house with actors in period costume to answer your questions. We missed the tour but still enjoyed walking through the house. You can even sit in the Model T out front and take pictures.

Such an interesting look at the early to mid 1900s. The in-character staff adds a background and ambiance to the experience. I prefer the historical perspective but as a fan of the Hunger Games series visiting the set enhanced the visit value.
