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!

A group of 8 of us went on a Saturday morning. The staff who helped us were Coutney, Casey, Adrian, and Kate. We loved how the course was structured and how helpful the guides were. With each zone, the obstacles got progressively more difficult, higher, and zip lines faster, but this setup makes you feel ready for zone 3. Also,... More

This is a very unusual museum in that most of it is outside "in the woods", and it's more "zoo" than "museum". I spent a couple of hours here on a Saturday morning in April just after they opened at 9 AM. You'll want to get here early because their parking lot is small. When it fills up you'll park... More

Wonderful little natural history museum! Was surprised to find native wildlife at the park. Was even more surprised at how well the animals were cared for - everyone looked healthy and happy. We tried the zip-line course, which was a first for us, and it was very much worth the price and a TON of fun. Once you get over... More

So much to do including great exhibits and the zip line! One of Tally's best, and absurdly good prices.

There was plenty to see here, from old buildings to live animals, to a farm and if you are so inclined you can walk thru the treetops!! We visited today and spent 3 hours walking thru and seeing everything. Beautiful setting in nature!! We did not do the treetop adventure, that is for the younger folks! But it looked liked... More

Tree adventure was awesome and that is truly why we stopped. My daughter loved it. She is 7 and could only do the kid version. She bought a new soft friend, a white squire and named it zippy after the zipline. The animals in the farm area and wildlife area looked unhappy. They are stuck in confined spaces, smaller than...

I bought a family membership this year to the Tallahassee Museum for the first time. We've visited a few times to see the animals, but we just tried out the Tree to Tree Adventures this week. My 16, 9, and 8 year olds and I (32) did the Canopy Crossing course. It was so much fun! Adults - be prepared... More
