Docent was helpful and exhibits were top notch. Too bad some exhibits were under construction, but that gives us a reason to come back. Best History lesson and free too. Great for kids and adults alike. Free parking in the building beside and clean restrooms.

Nice set up on Florida history from the dinosaurs to present day. Excellent displays that you can follow in a full stroll through the museum.

We were in Tallahassee on business and we ended up at the Museum of Florida History. The presentations were amazing, the treasure trove of learning was stupendous and the atmosphere lent itself to a wondrous learning environment. As an educator I was extremely impressed with all the artifacts and memorabilia that was housed in the museum. The museum was set... More

My husband, our 13 year old son, and I went on a Saturday and spent a few hours. Parking is free on the weekends, and this museum is free, though they have a box for donations as you're leaving. You follow the history of Florida, all the way from the PaleoIndians, through Spanish settlement, to the US of today. There... More

As a Tallahassee resident, I've been going to the Museum of Florida History for years and it was always a good hands-on museum with a lot to offer. But it has been upgraded and all I can say is wow! The quality of the new and revamped displays was superb. Lots of hands-on displays for the kids. Audio for folks... More

A first class museum and free to boot (donations accepted!). There is even free parking on the south end of the museum. Kudos to the staff for not only being knowledgeable, but friendly too. We were given an over-view of the entire museum by a wonderful volunteer, Peter Jefferson. There were several "ducants" who came to us during our walk... More
