Toured this museum on 7/3. The greeters were knowledgeable with quirky fun facts about the state. It took us about an hour and a half to wander through all of the exhibits. Beautiful place. Glad we stopped.

The Capitol is beautiful. They have tours of the old Capitol with antiques from the past used at the capitol. Its a history lesson! If you are looking for something educational and fun, this is the place in Tallahassee!
