This museum, which is also known as the Tallahassee Automobile and Collectibles Museum, is a must for both car and antique enthusiasts. With a wide variety of collections, including cars, knives and cash registers, the museum is a hit with history buffs. Some of the unique cars found inside include the 1911 Ford Model T Torpedo Runabout, the 1962 Amphicar and the 1966 Cherry Twister Mustang. You'll also be able to view the hearse that is believed to have transported President Abraham Lincoln, the Penguin's Duck Vehicle (from the movie "Batman Returns") and a collection of Steinway pianos, including the famous White House gold piano.

#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.
