  • Most of us know some ragtime music, from the film " The Sting" if nowhere else. Scott Joplin lived in this house for only two years, but it was during a productive time in his career. Seeing inside th...  more »
  • The house is rather bare bones but the guide has loved ragtime and joplin since he was 7! He has done a lot of the joplin research and loves to pass on what he knows. Hearing recordings of joplins mus...  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 CafĂ© 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.
