What’s new at the Museum?

Chances are there’s an exhibit at the Guest Animal Habitat or PhippsGallery you haven’t yet experienced!

Twice per year, the Museum’s Guest Animal Exhibit hosts exotic wildlife from around the world, so our community has an opportunity to explore and educate themselves about the differences and similarities between our current guest and our native animals.

Relax in the climate-controlled Phipps Gallery. Temporary displays feature a wide range of topics including popular culture, collectibles, and art.






Six otter siblings have made the trip down to the Tallahassee Museum from the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve in Maryland to be the museum’s guest animal through the spring. Come see them while they’re here!
