This zoo is pretty cool and is a zoo even though it is labeled a museum. The neat thing about it is that it is in Tallahassee and easy to get to from there. Unfortunately, it is a bit overpriced and pretty small. My most recent trip was also made before I met Jenna, so she has never been. You guessed it, that means poor pictures. I can borrow some from online though and post.

Highlights: Location, Location, Location. It also had very good displays for the Florida Wildlife. That is all that is on display at this place though other than a guest animal exhibit which changes from time to time. The coolest thing about this place is the albino squirrels moving about.

Disappointments: Price. Small. Definitely not as cool as Wakulla Springs and more pricey. If you are in the area, I recommend driving to Wakulla instead. Here is our review of Wakulla.

Guest Animal Habitat. When I have visited it usually is some monkeys.
Natural Florida. This section focuses mainly on plant life, but sometimes you can see the squirrels moving through here and there is a tortoise in one part.
American Alligator
Black Bear
Florida Panther
River Otter
White Squirrel
I gave the Tallahassee Museum 2 out of 5 elephants. It was pretty average and when you factor in price below average, but some things were pretty neat. I may go back some day.
