Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee

We made a fieldtrip of it Satuday & spent the day in Tallahassee.  A large part of the trip was spent at the Museum of Florida History.  We enjoyed it completely - there was a little something for everyone.  

The museum was laid out chronologically - from the first human arrivals to the 21 century.  Joe spent the most time in the early stuff (lots of arrowhead & bone artifacts).  The kids loved the dugout canoes, and especially "Grandma's Attic" - a hodgepodge of dress-up clothes & treasures tucked away in an upstairs nook just for little ones.  I really liked the fiber samples of different cordage & weaving.  Also, I could have spent much more time studying the Spanish coins.
