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!

My kids grew up going to the "Jr. Museum" (to those of us who have been around Tallahassee for a while) and now I enjoy taking my grandkids. The animals are always a favorite but the "living history" part and the exhibitions they do are also always lots of fun. Even after 27 years, we still walk through the caboose... More

Tallahassee does not have a zoo, so one day we went here to see the animals. It is a great day trip for families, couples or even solo. They have a little bit of history showing the old trains, houses and churches. They also have animals, a park for the kids, a farm area and a picnic area. Sometimes they... More

......this is not a museum. This is a much needed facility for injured animals to be treated back to health. Since we were there, we toured the grounds and liked most of it but had to radically adjust our expectations. Once was enough for us. Not sure kids seeing a cougar who has to drag it's paralyzed back legs around... More

A great place for kids or adults who enjoy being outside! Every year our parents give us a family pass and it is one of our favorite gifts!

the Tallahassee Museum isn't what I expected -- more outdoors/animals than indoors/historic artifacts. We didn't see all the animals they have given the temperature -- it was early January, but we saw wolves, a panther, a sleeping bear and more. It was a fun time -- not as big and varied as expected but worth a visit. Allot yourself about... More

We went on a cold January morning and loved it. The wildlife is beautiful and engaging, the zip lines were exciting, particularly for our 10 and 15 year old.

The museum has many native animals including Bobcat, Florida Panther, gators, deer, & the likes. Boardwalks take you above the animals habitat for a better view. Fun Zip Line. Great area for kids where they excavate fossils from large rocks. Good place to picnic. I go there several times a year.

As a Tallahassee native, I grew up going to the Junior Museum :), and now take my two awesome kids to the Tallahassee Museum. Not only is this a great place to take the family but an awesome place to enjoy the Tree to Tree Adventures. Truly one of those places I have never outgrown.

Perfect day to visit. People in period clothing. They had reenactments going on. Crafts for the kids. We were there for at least 5 hours. Next time we'll do the zip lining. Go and you will have a great day

Not a zoo. Lots of Florida animals in somewhat natural habitat. Great gift shop. Historically relevant with early black church and black school house for touring. Great metal sculptures of dinosaurs by Gary done back in the 50's. Lots of walking on boardwalks with gorgeous setting among the cypress trees. Has 4 zip line courses including a children's zip line.... More
