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 have lived in Tallahassee for years, and ever since having kids we have bought the family membership. The kids love seeing the animals and playing on the playground, and us adults love it just as much as the kids. Our favorites are the otters, the bears, and the alligators. It is very much a "must see" place to visit... More

We did the zipline adventures. My friend is scared of heights and wanted to overcome this fear before doing this stuff in basic training. The zipline courses are only about two stories up. With all of the attention to details that happens, one does not have the time to look down. Fun was had by both of us. Only advice... More

We new there were lots of things to do at the museum, but quite surprised on how wide-spread the zip-line and element course was above the animals and out over the animal areas. This is an exciting way to see the museum we will return to see with our teenagers and Venturing Scout crew. We enjoyed seeing and learning from... More

This was such a great little surprise! My 1.5 year old and I had a blast seeing all of the animals and I feel they were in very good living conditions. The otters were hilarious! And it couldn't be a better setting, gorgeous!

Our family has had yearly membership for several years now. We enjoy everything about the museum, especially the animals. Our daughter loves the tree-to-tree adventure. Just great place all around to be.

Just happened on the Swamp Stomp Festival at the museum. Its been going on for 38 years and I can see why. A lot of locally well know artists and great variety of music. An outdoor festival included the zip lines for adults and children. I plan to go back next year.

My husband and I loved the experience! It was amazing! I have never done tree climbing and this experience was very cool! They have 3 types... The first about 25 minutes, another with 40 min (I did this one!) and the last one with 60 minutes. They have one only for the kids and the parents could accompany their children!... More

Our family of four, which includes a 15 year-old and a 7 year-old, went to the Tallahassee Museum today and loved it! We saw lots of wildlife. The facility is very well maintained and all of the staff we interacted with were incredibly nice and friendly. It is hot and humid this time of year, so getting there earlier rather... More

This place is a gem for animal lovers. Come early before it gets hot (but most of it is shaded, so not too bad if you're used to the heat) and bring bug spray. We loved exploring at our own pace, having a picnic, & playing on the playground. The staff were all so nice! Well definitely be back.
