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.

It’s one of the tallest state capitol buildings in the country and the centerpiece of the Tallahassee Capitol Complex, which encompasses the Old Capitol, and nearly twenty other state office buildings.

This Florida Panhandle Capitol is open to the public Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed on state and national holidays) and admission is free. Self-guided tour information is available at the Capitol. For tours during the legislative session (March and April), reservations are recommended well in advance.
