Hands-on activities abound in our school break camps and educational programs.


By creating a safe and supportive learning environment, we aim to create a community of learners who are confident, inquisitive, and empowered to explore and protect the wonders of their world.

We are delighted to announce that the Tallahassee Museum Preschool is currently enrolling for the 2021-2022 School Year! Our preschool program is for 3-5 year olds beginning on August 11th and we hope your little one might join us. We offer a Monday-Friday full day class, a Monday-Friday morning class, and a qualified voluntary pre-kindergarten class within the full day program. The whole Museum is our classroom and families accepted into our preschool program will receive benefits like a Friends and Family membership to the Museum! Learn more at the link in bio.
