The Florida Capitol

Historic Capitol Musuem


As the former House chambers, Senate chambers and Supreme Court, the Florida Historic Capitol Museum was a former government office that was restored to its original 1902 appearance by Tallahassee citizens when the structure was faced with demolition. The campaign to preserve The Old Capitol was highly successful leading to the development of the recognizable stained glass dome, the candy-stripped window awnings, and the new Florida Legislative Research Center and Museum. Guests visit the museum to learn the history of Florida state government from the days as a US territory to present day through the hundreds of artifacts and room exhibits.
