Used to me call the Junior Museum. Still has the animals and a couple of old buildings which is interesting . But to compare this to a zoo is a great big no.

We have been visiting The Tallahassee Museum for years! There is something for everyone: live animals, art, zip lining and interactive activities!

The best part was the animals! Up close with an owl was definitely unexpected. Bears, large cats, and more. There was also a very interested 3d exhibit on ant mounds, using actual ant mounts. Had a great time!
