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.

Step back in time and see how Florida and North Florida was originally settled under the US flag. This is such a great spot and if you are lucky, you can and will attend one of the many functions held at their facilities. Go if you get the chance...!!!

Wow, what a beautiful find right in the heard of the city! We stopped by shortly after they opened and found ourselves to be nearly the only visitors. We didn't take a tour of the house, though one is offered. The house is a beautiful old home from the exterior and, given more time, definitely would have liked to tour... More

The tour starts with the introduction of the families who have lived there. Each contributed to the interior designs and the furnishing that are on display. There is a large collection of interesting objects from all the periods of the house's history. The tour includes the house and all the furnishings. After the tour, you are invited to visit the...

Ah, pass the sweet tea Miss Scarlett. Take a nice stroll through the grounds but tour the tour house also.

When we walked around the grounds of this historic plantation, I felt like I was at Tara! We didn't tour the house, but if we had more time, that looked quite interesting. There was supposed to be an audio tour of the gardens, but the woman behind the desk at the visitors center didn't mention it. So ask about it!

This is a side of Florida that we have not experienced on our previous trips, which have been to beaches, Disney etc. Goodwood is an Antebellum plantation estate that has been very well restored, and brought to the condition that it was in around in the early part of the 20th century. The furnishings are mostly original items from the... More

Lunch with friends in Fannie's Cafe, then take a Docent guided tour of the lovely house and grounds. Five families lived in this beautiful stately home, and all left items and furniture behind. Built in the early 1800's, this house is a treasure. A 'don't miss' for anyone, but especially tourist interested in the history of Tallahassee. One of Tallahassee's... More
