Florida Historic Capitol Museum
Florida’s original State Capitol, this historic structure originally opened in 1845 when Florida became a state. As Tallahassee and Florida grew, the capitol received expansions. By the 1970s, the state decided to build a new capitol – the 22-story building towering behind it. The old capitol was actually threatened with demolition in the late 1970s, but in the end was saved and restored as a Florida Panhandle landmark.
Restored to its 1902-era appearance, it serves as the Florida Historic Capitol Museum. Numerous exhibits on the state and its history are showcased throughout the building; tours are free (although they happily accept donations) and the building is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and noon to 4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
