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!

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.

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.

It is not exactly a museum, but it sure is a great way to spend a day out. There is a bit of history in "Old Florida", a collection of historic buildings, such a schoolhouse and the Catherine Murat plantation house. There is lots of nature and a "mini zoo" where you can see wolves, cougars, bobcats, etc. Great art made of automobile parts spread around a trail. Also an old "farm" with some, oh, farm animals.

All in all it is a fun way to portray a region.

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

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.

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.

What a hidden treasure. This interactive museum is a great family outing. The tree to the adventures were outside. Great crews to help you get started and the courses are quite challenging. Lots of play areas for the kids with plenty of shade.

I visited mid week and found all the attractions, that is those where staff are supposed to be on hand to explain/demonstrate were empty. Of course you could walk arround but I must say the animals I could see were in very poor condition and the farm cow was bordering on "animal cruelity". I really do think the Tallahasse Authorities should investigate this facility and either immediately improve it or better still close it down - it really is an absolute discrace.

Great place to spend a relaxing day and learn a great deal in the process. Natural History and the History of Florida is on display here. One area has an interesting tie between President Washington and Napoleon.

Families with small children will love this mostly out-of-doors museum. The zoo trail winds through a forest/ wetland habitat full of native Florida wildlife. Other activities include an 1880's cracker farmstead, three historic florida buildings and an awesome playground! There is also a cafe on site, but you can bring in your own food to enjoy on picnic tables located near the farm. And there is plenty for adults to enjoy, too. The gift shop has a nice selection of Florida literature and animal "stuff".
