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!

Nature at its best.

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.

A great place to visit with children especial when it is very hot outside.The entire park is shady. Any animal you could imagine and don't miss the zip line. Plan a couple of hours to enjoy the whole experience. You can always come to the office and cool down if too hot. Don't let the kids go home without purchasing... More

I was expecting the average (not a bad thing) museum building, but this was so much more...it's history, a park, interactive activities, a natural setting zoo, zip lining. Bought membership for my son & his family as part of their Christmas gift. Highly recommend you take the time to visit!

There really is a lot to do here and they hold a lot of special events. The last I attended with my grandson was a Pokemon Go event. So much fun. All prices including those for the zip line are more than reasonable.

Spot to introduce kids and adults to local history and natural assets--wildlife, trees, nature walks, an old farm with domestic animals. A glimpse of Florida life and culture a century ago. A treasure!

Not sure what to do with the family on a gorgeous day? This is the place to go! A fabulous mix of Floridian history, 100 yr old buildings and manor house, native wildlife that includes bears, mountain lions, foxes, wolves, snakes, gators and many more, an entire farm with animals to enjoy, a beautiful setting amidst lakes and trees, a...

Omg this was awesome . Calvin was our instructor he was awesome. The staff was friendly . It was one of the funniest days in a while. I took my son 12 and cousin he is 10. The 10 year old found it more challenging because he wasn't quite tall enough. It was super hot but nice breeze and shade.... More

This was our first time on a zipline and it was scary, exciting and fun all at the same time. It was a well spent 2 hours and got some pictures for great memories.
