The Tallahassee Museum offers about 30 permanent exhibits, ranging from the historic Big Bend Farm to Jim Gary’s Twentieth Century Dinosaurs to the indigenous Wildlife Florida displays. Museum exhibits seek to ignite excitement, curiosity, and understanding in our visitors about our region’s natural and cultural heritage and resources.
The Museum also hosts 4 to 6 temporary exhibits annually to help enrich the permanent exhibits and educational programs. Temporary exhibits incorporate traveling exhibits originating from organizations such as the Smithsonian Institution, various museums, private collectors, as well as temporary exhibits produced from the Museum’s own collections. These temporary exhibits also include borrowed animals from other zoos for display in the Guest Animal Exhibit. Numerous smaller temporary exhibits are hosted in the Museum’s Discovery Center, Visitor Center, and Natural Science Building.
