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

I was very impressed with this museum. There is also a cute Resturant called, "The Egg" that's great. My favorite and only part I saw (due to remodeling?) was the civil rights room. It was stunning.

We go to this site every year and never tire of it. You walk through a very scenic area filled with wonderful animals. They are continually upgrading the site and have added zip lines and overhead walkways. This is a great place for all ages.

I like to walk through the museum down stairs in the RA Grey Building and check out the various displays. My favorite is the Quilt display. It is a nice place to go with your children for an afternoon adventure at no cost.

The Museum of Florida History is one of my annual destinations and I live in Tallahassee. On a hot summer day it is an oasis from the heat. It is fun and educational. They have a great gift shop which I often go to for an unusual and fun gift. The history is fun and often very interactive. The staff... More
