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 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!

We’ve gone here 5 times over the past several years and I’ve never been disappointed. Great diversity of Florida wildlife that’s never afraid to be photographed.

service dogs are typically very well-behaved and I would think it should not present a problem. As long as you have the proper credentials I don't think they can refuse you entrance.
