"Educational"

If you are on a homeschooling field trip, then this place is a goldmine.  Little guys will be bored.  Kids 10 and older should enjoy it though.  Many of the exhibits have been around for 25 years or so and I still love them.  It is fun to see my kids have the same museum experience I had at their age.

"So much fun in a MUSEUM!"

Tallahassee does a marvelous job combining animals, natural habitats, with hands on learning exhibits and great areas for children of all ages, even us big kids.  Plan to spend at least 3 hours to enjoy the full 'tour'.  This will definitely be worth the trip.

"Fun with the Family"

If you do nothing else in the capital city, you must make it to this attraction. Part zoo, part hands-on museum and living history arena, it gives you fifty-two acres and a half-day’s worth of activities, including a re-created nineteenth-century farm, boardwalks through panther and red wolf habitat, historical buildings, and a Discovery Center.
The animal exhibits are conscientious in the way they allow Florida’s native critters to roam freely within low-impact barriers. Kids love the indoor Discovery Center—especially the feel-and-identify box and crawl-through tree—and the old schoolhouse once attended by the children of former slaves. Go when guides dress and act the part of nineteenth-century settlers, usually every day but Monday, but for sure on weekends.
