The where actually going to make a pie out of the recipe booklet that they offer. My only recommendation would be... More

I used to live in Tallahasee as a kid and visited this museum several times a year. Today, I brought my kids. We had so much fun. They lived looking at the old church and houses... Didn't expect that. They lived the train car... Had fun climbing in it (I did the same as a kid... Brought back memories). They... More

You need three hours to see everything and make sure to do a tree to tree adventure. The mid grade one was challenging and a ton of fun.

I love that the animals are in a natural habitat. Nice relaxing walk through the trails with several rest stops along the way.

The Jr Museum has long been that one place in Tallahassee we take all of our visitors to. It's a really awesome hands on experience for young and old kids to share.

We enjoyed our day so much we bought a family membership. We went zip lining and they even had a course for small children. There is an old plantation house with slave quarters, an old farm, a caboose and more. Food was available. Looking forward to attending their events!

The museum is a great destination for a family on a day which is too hot or too cool. A very friendly man on reception explained about the venue and we spent an enjoyable hour and half exploring the place. Many of the exhibits are interesting to all ages. Children will love the wooly mammoth on display. A bonus is... More

The Tall. Museum is unlike most any other museum I have ever been to. It has a wide range of attractions including nature trails, animals in their natural habitats and area history. Also the musical events scattered throughout the year are always top notch.

The Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science is not what you think of when you think of a museum. Most of the museum is outdoors in an expansive area that includes a cane plantation village, complete with farm animals and vegetable gardens, hands-on lab buildings for kids, zoo, amphitheater, a historic plantation home and walking trails. There is also... More
