About
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!

Very interesting place to visit, multi-generational interests from history to animal life to zip lining. I took many photos of beautiful cypress swamp on the grounds. Lots of territory for exploring on foot; things of interest to all ages. In town so easy to add on to an overnight stay in the city.

This is a great animal park, but also enriched with important Florida History. We've always loved this place and ever since our sons were very little. They always loved it too, especially the animals and the little red caboose. These are very cherished memories for all of us. There are many fun, family activities to do here, like ziplining, guided tours (like the Night Prowl), and self-guided walking with plenty of room to explore.

The state of Florida is open. The CDC has relaxed it’s guide lines on masks. No restrictions on numbers of visitors anywhere in the state, yet here at The Tallahassee Museum the exhibits are still closed. Very disappointing. If they were worried about safety they could open the buildings and require masks for entry, but that is not the case either.

What a nice little animal park this place is. Now there are some historical buildings on the grounds. So I guess it is a museum by definition. But with pandemic protocols in place, most were closed.

I enjoyed exploring the trails through the old buildings and taking a peek inside. Strolling through the animal park section, you'll see a few cool animals like wolves, bobcats, deer, and cougars...to name a few. There's also some dinosaur sculptures made from car parts.

Throughout the park there's are a few zip line courses. To zip, there's an additional fee that you need to pay at the admissions window.

The dirt parking lot has a lot of spots but it was packed when I stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. While parking, I saw a white squirrel running around...I've never seen one of them before.

It was a very unique museum experience. It was all outdoors with a variety of things to see from an old farmhouse set up with farm animals, old plantation, train caboose, to seeing animals in a neat zoo like atmosphere. We had a wonderful time. It was more than we imagined.

Note: Bring a cooler lunch to eat at your car. There is a cafe on site but it is very limited and there are only 1-2 people working so the wait on your order can be long.

This was the first time I ever tried zip lining. IT WAS AMAZING! You have got to try this! Even if you don't think it sounds like fun, just try it! You won't be disappointed.
I wasn't overly enthusiastic when I was told that's what we were going to be doing, but I figured I'd give it a shot and see. I am so glad I did! I have two more trips already lined up, I had so much fun! Even if you aren't a fan of heights( and I'm definitely not. 😂) You're concentrating on the canopy obstacle course so hard you barely notice until it's time to go zipping and by then you're ready for the exciting ride with a view.
Technical details: The price wasn't at all bad. I was surprised at how cheap it was. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and patient.
You need closed toed shoes and leave all your stuff in your vehicle. You don't need to take anything with you, trust me, you don't wanna be up there trying not to drop your purse. The course itself is broken up into three parts, so there's two water breaks you come down for. It's a great workout.
The staff is super patient. They give clear and easy to follow instructions and are with you the entire time. They're thorough in their instructions for equipment use. (No, it isn't as complicated as it seems, provided no one needs to hold a lighter next to your head to get those last two little neurons all warmed up. 😆)
If you're visiting Tallahassee, I highly recommend you set some time aside for this. You won't regret it.

We enjoyed our experience at the museum today! Lots of animals in their natural habitats. Even with some things being closed due to Corona Virus this was a great family outing!

My family and two-year old grandson have visited this place twice. Both times, we had a good experience.

Most of the boardwalk had been repaired from Hurricane Michael; so we were able to photograph a number of the animals and birds that are there. The plantation house was somewhat of a surprise--it was rather plain and we learned that was typical for many of them. The other outbuildings--the church, the farm, along with its outbuildings--were a reminder of another era.

It was 55 degrees and drizzling. When we went in the lady suggested we hurry to see the wildlife before the rain. We ate at the cafe which was ok, not great. My disappointment was that when we went to visit the wild animals several of the exhibits were closed for repair and maintenance. I wish the lady had told us. We still saw several animals and that was great. Next time I'll ask if all exhibits are open
