Our guide said it was open, but the house is closed. We picked on the window and did not seem very spectacular. We have seen so many antebellum homes in this trip it was no big deal. The gardens are not much either.

Viewing the "Gardens" is free, which is good as they are very modest and not ment to be botanical garden worthy. There are old building on the property which are interesting. The house tour was $20 for two and was absolutly the most thorough tour we've ever had. We were the only two on the tour which may have aided... More

Beautiful home and gardens, not to be missed if visiting Tallahassee. So many things to see in the house and such an interesting history. Bring cash for entry as card facilities not always available. Photos cannot be taken in the house but do not let this put you off visiting. It is a gem.

This is a fabulous place for a multiple array of events. It must have been quite lovely to have lived there as a resident back in the day.

Goodwood is nestled so well in Tallahasse that it may go unnoticed. It is wlorth a visit to get a feel for an upscale lifestye in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Tallahassee. The grounds offer several out buildings that are interesting; e. g., the water towewr. The main building is large and filled with otems from all the families... More

Beautifully restored with an incredible amount of original pieces and well kept grounds. So much to see the 12$ admission is totally worth it. Great way to see Tallahassee history

Lovely antique rose varieties, interesting house, good special programs that reenact lost skills like weaving. Worth a visit. The Friends group sells starts of the pass-along plants and old roses every year--good if you can snag a parking place when they have these sales.

This house museum was more interesting than I thought it would be. You can enter and walk the grounds for free, but you should take the tour of the house. It takes about an hour and is steeped with history and antiques. Very educational. It costs about $10-$12 dollars depending on your age. The "gardens" don't look like much but... More

Very detailed tour full of facts. We learned so much about the history of the premises. We really enjoyed seeing the furnishings and hearing about the lives of the people who lived there.
