A most fascinating museum because of the live exhibits, a disappointing museum because of it's lack of resources. My step father is a visually impaired veteran and he loves going to these with us who are sighted, however, there wasn't much he could enjoy as far as descriptive displays or things he could touch. Not sure it's really worth $9

Grandson enjoyed the kids zip-line and zoo area. The walk through the natural habitat trails was pleasant in spite of being summer time in Florida. We had a very nice time.

We found our time there to be both fun and educational. We enjoyed the "treetop adventure" and loved the zip line. We like to take out of town guests for a fun day out in the air.

I have only seen two zip lines, and the Tallahassee Museum's has to be the longest and most demanding of those I have seen. I recommend it to all thrill seekers.

On a recent business trip, I was lucky enough to have the wife and kids in tow. Found this attraction on trip advisor and thought it would be a good way to get the kids out and about. Fortunately, we got there within a few hours of closing and happened upon Mike Jones, the animal curator. After crossing paths several... More

Second time around! This time we took our family that was visiting from California. It was raining when we first started the course but then the weather started to clear up. The experience was as awesome as ever! We felt like pros by the time we finished the entire course. We wish it was longer. I can't say enough great... More
