It was just after hurricane Harvey, & before Irma. Being a week day it was basically empty. The lady at the information desk, gave a little "spiel" about the building & then we walked around. Very interesting & I am glad we did this.

Spend a little time in Tallahassee to get to know your states' history. The tour isn't long and shows the old capitol building, which is where the museum is located.

Depending on your level of interest, you view everything in at least 2 hours! This is if you stop and look at the displays and read the stories!
