    We stopped by late in the day, close to closing. The tour guides were kind enough to squeeze in a tour for us, and one got the sense of what it was like for Scott Joplin to live and compose in Saint L...  more »

    A really cool historic site! Scott Joplin was a great composer of the ragtime era. Quite a prodigy, he was known to write his music out without playing it first! If you pay for the tour, you may get to hear some of his music on a player piano. Street parking is readily available and usually a safe bet during open hours.

    One of St Louis' hidden treasures. The docents are most knowledgeable and be sure to browse the book titles in the gift shop area. You'll find things there unseen elsewhere. The Rosebud Café is an intimate spot for private parties too large for most homes & too small for a hotel. Plus you can use your own caterer.

    Not on par with the Frederick Douglass's Cedar Hill or Maggie L. Walker's house in Richmond but worth the time nonetheless. Great knowledgeable staff, I just wish more things were actually Joplin's and not period pieces. I still give it Four stars.

    Very friendly staff the house restoration makes it a beautiful place to be. We didn't have time to tour but we would love to come back at a later date.

    Been here before and staff are amazing and detailed. It's a wonderful experience. However, be warned, they are closed for off season in at least December and January. Which I realized after making a 130 mile trip today.
