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!

If you come to Tallahassee and you get bored, come here, it's fun and interesting seeing all the animals and the historic items, If you decide to come here, come on a cool day when all the animals come out, and keep an eye out for the foxes and panthers up in the trees.

They have animals in outdoor enclosures, ziplines, a barnyard/historical area, and various other things to do, so you get some education, some exercise, and a lot of fun. My son has loved their camps for years and their staff are mostly top-notch.

A perfect distance from town, it is the place to take young children and let them roam on a sunny breezy afternoon for a few hours before the football game.

We left for the hurricane and it was ok. There was not really alot of stuff to do. The zip line I guess would have been good. They did not offer a military discount :-(. There was a couple of horses and a cow and the old slave stuff. Not really a good place. I was disappointed. The pink dinosaur... More

Great place for the whole family! Several levels of fun. Take a nice walk with the smaller kids & show them the animals. Inside areas for older adult to rest & cool off & zip lines for older more adventurous kids to enjoy!
