Had extra time during passing through Tallahassee so we chose to visit this attraction. Glad we did. Staff was very knowledgeable of the history of the mansion and eager to share it. Main building was full of interesting furniture, accessories and period clothing. A number of out buildings were also available but could only be viewed from the outside. Although... More

Love the old plantation feel! It is a beautiful place with great Tallahassee history. I know you can also do events here. That would make an incredible spot!

I love going to events at this place as it always fits the setting for the event. I go several times a year and have never had a complaint what so ever. Perfect for weddings, company party's, reunions, and holiday parties. I always go to my accountants party there after tax season in April so cant wait for that this... More

The grounds and the home is beautiful! Fully furnished with original furniture and personal items of the 5 different families that had lived there from the 1800's to the 1900's. Wonderful staff that is very knowable of the home and grounds. Please take time to go back in the past. You will not be disappointed!!!!

We go to special events at Goodwood, and occasionally have enjoyed lunch at its cafe on the grounds. Visitors may feel like they have stepped into a time machine because while it has a fascinating history and is a beautiful place, it's still in much of its authentic, lived-in condition, not too gussied up. Quite delightful and relaxing

This property is truly amazing. The buildings are stunning, so much history from the time of huge plantations in the late 1800's. Beautiful grounds, enormous Live Oak trees everywhere, cypress moss, gardens, and more. I highly recommend to take a guided tour. Many of the previous owners of the property left personal items that make the mansion seem like the... More

This place is such an ideal location and service to anyone having a wedding and reception. The ground are perfect for the photographer in me who wanted to continue shooting almost all day. The old homes and the out lying buildings are in good shape and the reception area was just lovely. I wanted to come back and do the... More

We were so impressed with the docents who looked after us on our tour of the historic House. The House and contents were a delight and one of the best intact Houses we have visited. A great pity that all of the objects and possessions cannot be displayed as I am sure there will be more fascinating insights t the... More

My wife and I stopped and walked around the grounds at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens last week. It's a great place for doing some photography. The grounds are extensive but grounds maintenance is rudimentary by design. The effort is to represent the style of the times some 100 years or so ago. There are many great settings to make... More
