  • Very clean nice museum. We spent about 1.5 hours and I could have stayed easily another hour. It was very interesting learning about all of Floridas History.

  • Personally I loved the museum. My husband and I (A bi-racial couple with our son) decided to make a pit stop in Tallahassee because we love museums. The museum had so much to offer and plus it was free. I enjoyed it all the way until the end. They offered a special exhibition in the changing exhibit gallery. Yet again FREE to the public but there was a lady standing at the doorway reminding us not to take pictures or recordings. It was the journey of a west African slave. My issue is that it picked specific facts to push a specific narrative. I come to museums, libraries, historical monuments and landmarks to get the facts to create my own thoughts. If you walk back into the museum you can literally see the time line contradicting itself over and over again. Overall beautiful facility, lady at the front was extremely nice and helpful. The final exhibit was not the complete truth.
  • For the entire time my daughter was in elementary school we would visit this wonderful museum at least twice a month. It is so well done with great exhibits and ever-changing special exhibits that are amazing. The people who run this place take great care to make it one of the nicer small history museums you can ever visit.
