My children have enjoyed several visits to this attraction. I highly recommend it to younger children as an educational and fun activity. It gets hot in the summer, so go early in the day.

Recently had a wonderful time with kids & grandkids at Talla. Museum of History & Natural Science. Trail walk on lovely dirt and boardwalk path great fun to see the various Florida animals in their natural habitat. Zip line was excellent; adults and grandkids enjoyed the challenge on the well-designed adventure. Training beforehand very good and "spotters" conscientious and helpful.... More

This amazing place, formerly known as "The Junior Museum", has been a favorite of Tallahassee locals and visitors for many years. It has expanded in more recent years to include canopy zip lines, with 3 levels for young children, intermediate adventurers and experts--The old homestead farm, the old school, church and Murat house are the "history" experience; the nature trails...

The nature trail to see the large variety of Florida animals was excellent. In no way did it feel like a zoo setting. The animals had large areas to roam. The human history of the area was most interesting for someone from away like myself. There are a large number of buildings to visit as one strolls around the grounds.... More

Had many interesting displays of natural and historic stuff. I particularly liked the colorful dino scuptures along the paths and the FL panther area. I found that the 1+ hr zipline experience was mostly tightrope walking on boards and wires strung between trees. More scary than fun.

I'm surprised I missed this on a previous trip to Tallahassee. I'm glad I saw it this time. Still being Spring Break, the place was busy. There were 4 charter buses and a lot of kids. But with 52-acres, and the kids being in a centralized location, it was easy to see everything. If you like walking back in time... More

Not your typical museum but what a wonderful experience. We spent hours here not only enjoying the trails but watching the adults and children enjoy the obstacle course and zip lines through the trees. So worth the time to visit this out door museum.

So my family decided to stop in and check out the museum. Our ages ranged from 11 to 59. We were a party of 9 just to give you an idea of how hard it is to keep everyone happy and entertained. We collectively chose to do the zip line obstacle course not really knowing what that involved. Well it... More

The past few years we go every Feb to Tallahassee in Feb to visit my brother. One place we never miss is this out door museum. It has beautiful trails through a natural forest and has all sorts of local Florida wildlife in natural enclosures. It has recently added zip lines for all ages. It is a great place to... More
