Nestled within 52 acres of flora and fauna, the Tallahassee Museum is an oasis close to the heart of downtown. The Tallahassee Museum features a working 1880s pioneer farmstead, native Florida wildlife habitat (including panthers and red wolves), cypress swamp, Jim Gary's 20th Century Dinosaurs, and the all new Tallahassee Tree to Tree Adventures (an outdoor zip line and adventure course for kids and adults). Come enjoy the great outdoors with us at the Tallahassee Museum- where nature, history, science, and fun come together!

It was a fun visit. We needed a distraction because we had been evacuated from her home on the East Coast staying in a hotel in Tallahassee. My husband loved it we couldn't finish the entire Museum I've never been to one they had so many things to see. There has to be something for everyone here. Friendly staff.

We were passing through Tallahassee on our way from Jacksonville, FL to Destin, FL - 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 kids (6, 9). Looking for somewhere for a nice stop in the middle I came across this "museum" - which was so much more than I expected from it's name. We ended up spending several hours and leaving just... More

We had so much fun and apparently it was recently remodeled so it looks really nice. Way more than we expected for free. Definitely worth a visit. We couldn't see all of it will have to come back. Don't miss grandma's closet for the dress up room. Good pics

If you come to Tallahassee and you get bored, come here, it's fun and interesting seeing all the animals and the historic items, If you decide to come here, come on a cool day when all the animals come out, and keep an eye out for the foxes and panthers up in the trees.

They have animals in outdoor enclosures, ziplines, a barnyard/historical area, and various other things to do, so you get some education, some exercise, and a lot of fun. My son has loved their camps for years and their staff are mostly top-notch.

A perfect distance from town, it is the place to take young children and let them roam on a sunny breezy afternoon for a few hours before the football game.

Something for all ages. From grandparents, to parents to young children. Natural habitat zoo, zip line, 19th century farm and school house, playground, etc. Kids love it and so do their grandparents!.

We left for the hurricane and it was ok. There was not really alot of stuff to do. The zip line I guess would have been good. They did not offer a military discount :-(. There was a couple of horses and a cow and the old slave stuff. Not really a good place. I was disappointed. The pink dinosaur... More
