This is a well-presented house museum, with many ties to Florida history. The lady of the house was a little on the peculiar side, and among other eccentricities she wrote poems (well, doggerel) about the various pieces of furniture. These are attached to the furniture, and visitors can read her rhymes. The furniture alone is worth a visit. I was... More

Very hard to find this building.We suggested to the 2 ladies there that no one we asked,even locals just 100 yards away,knew where the house is.They agreed signage is poor...which might explain why we were the only people there!

Awesome & enthusiastic Tour guide made our day. Interesting house and tour. You felt like you knew the Knott family by the time you left. Super cool!

I just visited Tallahassee and decided to take the free tour around Knott House in the Park Avenue district. It was so interesting and educational, furnished as the home of 1920s politician William Knott and his wife Luella. She wrote little poems which are hanging from lamps, mirrors and chairs around the house - fascinating! An introductory film tells the... More

This is a one-of-a-kind place. Furnishings help one understand history and story of family is a lesson in itself. A pleasant surprise.

Guided tours take an hour. Check days and times before visit as we had to make a return trip next day to catch one. Friendly guide showed us a film then explained about the family that had lived in house. Very informative trip around the house although,with reading and questions, would have liked longer. The owner had written poetry about... More

I visited the Knott House for extra credit for a History Class that I have and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The tour guide was great, very well versed on the history of the museum and was patient enough to answer all of my questions. The history and the antiques were amazing. This is a MUST SEE!!

We were at the art festival and it was cold and raining so we went in to warm up. We were pleasantly surprise at how interesting the house was. Lots of Tallahassee history and antiques. The tour guide was excellent. it took u back to the olden days.

The Emancipation Declaration was read out on the steps of this house in 1865, very historic and important occasion, so glad they restored the house, its in a now lovely part of Tallahasse, surrounded by parks, a must visit place.
