It is a great museum. It may look small from the outside but it has a lot to offer. The best part is that is is free. After visiting the museum, you can walk across the street and visit the capitol.

I love state museums, they're all usually free. This one was fantastic, a great display of static scenes showcasing the history of Florida. I take one star off because most of the early artifacts are reproductions and interpretation items. I guess hundreds of years of...More

This is a must see for visitors to Tallahassee. It gives a look into Florida’s history from prehistoric through pre-Columbian and I to the modern era.
