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

Had a guided tour by a pleasant and well-versed young lady. Extremely interesting. The history of Florida was much different than I expected. The exhibits are excellent, well thought out and well laid out. I enjoyed this a lot.

This museum was impressive, and easy to find. Parking was easy for a Saturday. Upon entering, there was a very nice older man who got my young son to write everyone's name on the visitors list. I had to spell everyone's name for him. We went in and there were neat displays about the ancient people of what is now... More

We found this little gem accidentally while on our way to the Historic Capitol. Most of the museum is closed due them adding new exhibits but they do have an awesome Civil Rights in FL exhibit and The Highwaymen paintings along with a few pieces of the USS Florida. They had a volunteer in the Civil Rights exhibit that was... More

For years I bought the year long pass. This place has always been a place where I would go by myself and just think. Very peaceful and just really relaxing.
