Very nice historical tour as part of plantation. This home has been restored to include many original furnishings of the owners. The docents were very informed about all history and furnishings in the home and we could tell they were very passionate about their work. Many buildings are in process of restoration as well as the gardens to original plans. We did not make time to enjoy the cafe this trip.

The museum has a lot to offer concerning the past in and around Tallahassee, and the family is also very interesting - the woman that ended up inheriting the place really should never have been allowed anywhere near it. Great special events around Christmas

Our initial impression upon driving in was that of entering a page of history. The museum included the mansion and multiple out buildings set within lovely grounds. We found the docent both interesting and knowledgeable, actually Tom was one of the best that we have experienced in our travels.
The impression was one of a lavish, living plantation and not simply staged for tourists.

Who knew this was hidden behind TMH hospital?! A few friends and I went to check the plantation out on a slow Tallahassee Saturday. We were happily surprised to find so much history here in Tally and a beautiful home and grounds. I wouldn't make a big trip out of visiting here, but certainly worth going to see if you have a slow afternoon.

To be fair I did not tour the inside if the house because I was so put off by the exterior buildings and poor quality of the gardens. Maybe the inside is great but first impressions of the outside and grounds was not inviting.
