Museum of Florida History#8 in Best Things To Do in Tallahassee
Price & Hours
Some artifacts in the Museum of Florida History date as far back as 12,000 years ago, but others are more modern, such as the museum's various World War II memorabilia and the collections of flags, uniforms, coins and more.

On Monday through Friday, the museum opens at 9 a.m., while on Saturdays it opens at 10 a.m. and on Sundays at noon. Admission is always free, but donations are encouraged. The museum is located downtown, and parking can be found at the adjacent lot or any of the metered spaces on Martin Luther King Boulevard.

#1 Tallahassee Museum
Located about 6 miles southwest of downtown Tallahassee near Lake Bradford and Cascade Lake, the Tallahassee Museum is the perfect attraction for those looking to have some fun outdoors. Moved to its current location in the 1960s, the museum has evolved to include 52 acres of nature trails, living exhibits of flora and fauna, historical buildings, and a zip line and aerial adventure course.
Prior travelers said the outdoor adventure activities and rare wildlife living throughout the property more than justify the museum's admission price. However, even though the on-site parking lot does offer handicapped spots, the absence of paved pathways and accessible ramps makes the property difficult for visitors with mobility limitations to traverse.
