Staff-led tour of our newest temporary exhibit, Becoming Florida’s Capital.

Becoming Florida’s Capital
March 1, 2024 – January 5, 2025

Two hundred years ago, on March 4, 1824, Governor William Duval announced Tallahassee as the site for Florida’s new capital city. Local lore attributes the decision to two commissioners sent on a legendary journey, however, Tallahassee’s tale begins much earlier. In this temporary exhibition, the Florida Historic Capitol Museum invites you to explore the historical actions and power struggles that defined early Tallahassee and led to the city Becoming Florida’s Capital. On display from March 1, 2024 through January 5, 2025, this exhibition and related programming complement the City of Tallahassee and Leon County bicentennial commemorations.
