The museum is quite small, located in an old bank building near the Tallahassee Capitol. You will be amazed at their collection-- perhaps one of the most unique and best in the nation.

We had the opportunity to experience a great collection of history on a guide tour thought the musuem. During the tour we were given specific information regard the historcal items. I like all of the displays and the quaintness of the building. Some of the displays and the narration really provide a great account of the past.

We try to annually visit this museum and attend the events held during the Emancipation week. We travel in from CT and always enjoy the programs offered at this museum.

So much information and detail. A great record of history in the South. Some of the displays were shocking but all were accurate.
