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!

This outdoor museum is especially interesting to children who get to see a Florida brown bear, wolves, bobcats, a panther, wild eagles and hawks,, wild turkeys, and other animals in their native...

My favorite things at the Tallahassee Museum are the animal compounds. The foxes in the trees!. We saw bears swimming. The view from the catwalks is unusual and enables you to see into the back of each enclosure. Even on a hot da, the tree cover works to cool things down. It is 20 minutes from downtown and well worth... More

It had a lot of interesting things to see and learn about. My children enjoyed going there and I would suggest it as a stop on your trip to Tallahassee. There is a 10.00 fee for adults but has discounts. Is 52 acres and has animals and activities.

A wonderful place to visit and not that pricy at $10 for adults.I forget the price for children.They do offer a AAA discount though (which was $1 off admission),and also senior and student discounts.This is an out door type museum/zoo experience on 54 aces of land. A great place for children to learn some of the history of the area... More

Fun outdoor museum. I love the set up of the houses showing how life used to be in the 1800s and I also enjoy seeing all the animals. They recently added Tree to Tree Adventures, zip-lining, to their list of available activities and although I personally haven't tried it, it looks so fun! I definitely plan on coming back here...

Good for outdoor class. There is not much to see. I feel like I have waste money and time. If you don't have children do not go there.

You must go to this place!!! It has everything from Florida animals, Plantation, slave house, old church and school, to a Cracker style farm. There is even animals up close in the farm. It rocks what Florida was like, and is like. Please go!!! Take your time, and do not miss anything. They even have a place to get food,... More
