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!

We had a good time but next time we will go when cooler and maybe when they open. Most animals were sleeping but it has a nice flowing set up. My 5 year of daughter enjoyed the leopard he was lovely and the train caboose.

Leisurely trails past large enclosures of native species including a large cypress lagoon. A splendid respite from daily life. And in case you want to have a minor zip line experience, it's there for a moderate price, but that's mostly geared to the younger set. Don't forget to appreciate the magnificent magenta American Beauty berries.

We found the museum was nice and had a number of buildings and items that gives one an impression of what it is like to live in the centuries prior. The property is very large and the walking path to see the attractions is very nice. What really impressed us was the zip line course. It is much different than... More

The Tallahassee Museum, formerly known as the Junior Museum, has been a long time favorite attraction for Tallahassee residents; however this venue should be added to any out of town visitors with children.

I've always enjoyed the museum. It is very family friendly. You can even eat from the garden. It is a working museum, so costumed volunteers are seen on special days. It's a bit pricey for a family. Membership is a better way to go.

When my kids were small, we were lucky enough to live about a mile from the tallahassee Museum (known then as "The Junior Museum". Beside being a peaceful place to just roam around in, the Museum has interesting artifact collections, a reconstructed old farm (complete with animals), an excellent gift/book shop,and often temporary art exhibits and music festivals. It's a... More

This is a great interactive museum for both adults and children. We enjoyed each of the exhibits. This museum is an all day event. It takes time to see everything. If you are planning a visit plan a day. It is so worth the time. I would not recommend visiting in the summer.

This is a great place to take the entire family. Loads of wildlife to see and a working old time village to see and explore.

My husband was the first director when it was the Tallahassee Jr. Museum. It was good to see it again.

Wonderful exhibits of Florida animals (panthers, bears, gators, etc.),in their natural environment with a very educational historical village with farm animals and an arts/craft programs and a child or adult zip line and more! Great for any age. The go-to place for out-of-town guests.
