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 had SO much fun in the zoo area. But the highlight had to be the zip line! Love the interactive science area too!

Went there the end of last year. Located in a pretty wooded area just outside of Tallahassee. Wide variety of exhibits, animals and walking trails. Great place to go solo or with the family. Small kids will like it. Prices very reasonable.

You could easily spend the day here, with a break for lunch. It depends partly on how old your kids are, though, and how many of the exhibits you really want to look at.
