We visited the museum while stopping in Tallahassee for a day. Unfortunately, it was temporarily closed for remodeling. The gift shop and lower level were open so we visited these two areas. The workers or volunteers there were so friendly and helpful in the areas we visited. We did a scavenger hunt while on the lower level. It was fun... More

I'll admit I'm a sucker for history and the museum has been very well put together with great exhibits. You'll spend a good 3-4 hours in air conditioned comfort if you visit all the rooms.

We love this little museum. While it's not huge, it has fascinating exhibits that even our youngest has loved since he was 2! (Particularly due to the giant ship replica that you could explore, grandma's attic of antique dress up clothing, appliances and furniture, a replica of an ancient Jaramillo, and an educational art-coloring table. The parking can be validated... More

Always something new and a very helpful staff. Exhibits are neatly done and our kids love it. Great place to take the family. We have been several times over the years and will go again.

A quick walk away from FSU, FAMU, the Florida Capitol, and the Florida Supreme Court, the Museum of Florida History is a constantly evolving wealth of Florida history. There are new displays on almost a monthly basis. See Florida as it was before people all the way up to the present day (there's even an exhibit dedicated to sunken treasure... More

The Museum is closed for most of the summer for renovations. They said should be open around mid-August. Hopefully it will be upgraded when they re-open.

First of all, it is free. Can't beat that! We frequent the museum year round. There are stationary exhibits as well as changing ones. It is a good place for a rainy day or during the sweltering Tally summer. Also, I want to hug the genius that came up with Grandma's Attic. It is always my daughter's highlight of the... More
