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!

Our family enjoyed the old Florida Cracker buildings, learning the history about the State's slaves, and viewing wildlife in very natural settings. The museum has done a wonderful job of preserving and presenting local history through period buildings and staff on sight that demonstrate old-time skills. The boardwalk through the woods to see the animals was punctuated by a spectacular... More

My whole family loved the outdoor museum. We did the whole zip lining experience and it brought my family with a tween and a teen together and smiling to be outside and sweating. I did have to give up on the third zip line challenge. My experience with zip lining is that there is a break on the pulley, here... More

If you are expecting a museum, this is not it. If you're looking for history and natural science, I didn't see much. If you are looking for a real zoo or photo opportunities of natural flora, fauna or birds, go elsewhere. I was there on a hot Saturday afternoon and nothing was happening except the zip lines. But if you... More

Drawn into this facility by their annual Swamp Stomp acoustic music festival with the many bands that played. Returned in the morning to take to the Treetops ropes challenge and zip lines. They even have a course just for little kids. All were very well done! Safety was emphasized. On the sprawling grounds were nature trails, including thru the swamp,... More

The museum is a great place to take kids. They also have programs for adults, such as jazz days and stuff like that. I remembering going when I was young. I took my son when he was the appropriate age and have now taken my granddaughter as well. There have been a lot of upgrades and new things added over... More

I Took a friend of mine who had never been there before, and had a blast! There is so much to do, and you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. We attended a class making canned marmalade on a wood burning stove. The marmalade was great, and the class was a good time. A lot of the... More

Our whole family enjoyed our time here. We spent 5 hours exploring and doing the obstacle courses. We have children ranging in age from 5 to 14. They all had a blast. One if the best museums we've been to. All over the exhibits were outside so drink plenty of water. And the animals could actually be seen. Our kids... More

We have been going to this museum forever and a day. We took our kids when they were little, attended most all special weekends and now we are taking our grandkids and they love it! Our children attended a couple of their summer camps and we hope our grandchildren will too. They love to zipline and that is a boon... More
