Had some time to kill and stopped by the capitol. The museum is free and is self guided. There are rooms dedicated to aspects of Florida's political history, and you can see the old Senate and Delegate chambers. I would suggest taking 1 hour to do it justice.

Three floors of history about Florida, its legislature and laws, and the state house will satisfy any history buff. The students loved the scavenger hunt also.

The building has the old legislative and supreme court chambers, along with many rooms with historical display, and a video. The building was restored to the way it looked in the early 1900s. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We only had 45 minutes to see everything so some of the exhibits were shortchanged. It was set up to give a good grounding of the founding of the state of Florida and Tallahassee.

At the information desk the docent will give you an excellent overview of the creation of the original capitol building, it’s replacement and restoration. Next you should see the video that traces the socio-cultural history of Florida. There are two floors to explore where the Supreme court originally was, the Governor’s office with original furniture, and upstairs where the Senate and House met. Lots of well described exhibits, a beautiful staircase and a magnificent recreation of the dome’s stained glass window. (Be sure the docent tells you the saga of how the panel was able to be tesytored!)
