At the Tallahassee Museum, you should not expect a basic or traditional experience. Visitors are not cloistered indoors, art is not framed and silence is not a must! The Museum is a 52-hectare area of land and open air, located on beautiful Lake Bradford. Here, history, nature and wildlife intersect to tell an intriguing story about Florida’s natural and cultural heritage.
The main attractions are the wonderful restored 1880s-era farms, the nature trail for exploring the living collection of regional fauna and flora, and the outdoor exhibition of international renown, “Twentieth Century Dinosaurs” created by Jim Gary. These colorful dinosaurs were sculpted from recycled car parts which evoke thoughts on art, science and sustainability.
The newest addition to the museum is the Tree to Tree nature path, which includes ziplines. Undoubtedly, adventure and excitement await you at the museum! Exhibitions and activities vary throughout the year.
