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!

Every few months I bring the family (currently kids are 4 and 2) for a visit. We pack a lunch and bring the wagon/stroller. Easy place to let the kids loose to roam the trails and visit the native animals and historical farm. Great playground and museum shop. The cafe leaves something to be desired so we pack our lunches.... More

This was a wonderful park. A bit difficult to maneuver the parking. The park was mainly a zoo-type experience with the animals in a natural habitat. I was very easy to see the animals and the workers helped if the animals were shy so the children could see them. There was also an old-style farm with a working blacksmith, country... More

We had time to kill while meeting some friends in Tallahassee. Luckily we came across this museum. My wife loved the old historical cabins and the white squirrels running around.

The museum was well done, informative with about being cloying. Told a bit of florida history in a believable and interesting manner.

This is one of my favorite secret gems of the Tallahassee area. Now that they have added the treetop adventure, more people are discovering this incredible attraction, but it is still underutilized. The native animals in their natural habitat (or at least closer than you might expect) give you a real feel for what Florida used to be. The replicated... More

This is a small natural museum but lot's to see and do. Love the addition of the zip lines . Take a nice stroll through the wildlife habitats. If you can, come to their night time activities, especially the full moon over the lake. There is a nice playground for children and a hands on working farm, including biscuit making.

This is a very interesting, and for s small museum, it has great things to watch and explore. We definitely recommend checking out their website before you go to see if they have any new exhibits.
