A small museum with some artifacts of history. Interesting the house was occupied after the Civil War. Very close to the Capitol, once occupied by a high ranking State of Florida official. Known as the House That Rhymes due to Mrs. Knott's love of verse. If this house could talk it would tell a Beautiful Old Story of Tallahassee and... More

Tours are free to the public....The Knott House is an 1840's home decorated in the Victorian era....with 1900's furnishings original to the home when occupied by the Knott family. Very Interesting and the tour director was very knowledgeable.

My daughters have enjoyed attending poetry camp the last couple of summers. Mrs. Knott was certainly a character with her kerosene lamps and exercise bike. You have got to hear the story about the wallpaper.

Each and every year during Emancipation Week we visit from CT and attend the Knott House program. The program with the Emancipation re-enactment is a true historic event brought to life and each and every year I learn something new while attending this event. The fact that this programs also includes the community and allows African Americans to participate and... More

This beautiful old stately home was left to the City of Tallahassee and it ‘s a free museum that you shouldn’t miss! We had a very informative tour with our guide, Bea – who loves the house and Mrs. Knott’s poetry -- found everywhere around the house. Even though the stairs were difficult for Bea, she gave us a “private... More

Had an informative tour. Great to see how people lived and hear about their daily lives. Loved the fact that there might be a ghost there.

nice bit of history. Street this is on has many old homes-most seem to be lawyer offices now. Knott's left this home to the city. Our group of schoolkids had a hands on class w/a wonderful instructor...good bit of history with archeology/anthropology slant. Lots to see (don't touch!) and volunteer who gave us a tour wore her white gloves altho... More

Excellent tour by a well versed and pleasant guide. There are a lot of interesting stories in and about this house. The poetry Mrs. Knott wrote is displayed all around the house. The story of this family is really interesting. I recommend you not miss this if you are visiting Tallahassee. The area around this house has a lot of... More
