Tallahassee Museum

A pleasant drive south brings you to the Tallahassee Museum, a 52-acre museum for all ages in southwest Tallahassee--close to downtown--on scenic Lake Bradford. Elevated boardwalks ramble among natural habitats where visitors can view Florida panthers, red wolves, black bears, otters and other indigenous animals.

In addition to “Wildlife Florida,” the Museum takes guests back to “Old Florida” and a “Big Bend Farm” by way of the Bellevue plantation house, the Concord School House, an elaborate 1880s farmstead, a blacksmith shop and other historical buildings. Kids will enjoy hands-on learning in the Discovery Center, close-up animal encounters, and a just-plain-fun playground.

The internationally acclaimed exhibit, Jim Gary’s Twentieth Century Dinosaurs, also calls the Museum home. These vividly colored dinosaurs sculpted from recycled car parts evoke thoughts about art, science and sustainability. Tallahassee Tree to Tree Adventures, the Museum’s latest attraction, is a zip line and adventure course that encourages visitors to explore the majesty of nature from high in the trees.

Tallahassee Museum offers three meeting facilities including one with glass walls offering woodland views. Catering on site. Ample parking. Plus historic facilities for weddings and parties.
