March of Museums celebrates the variety and versatility of museums in our communities, and events will be offered throughout the month of March, including the Grand Opening of The Grove Museum on Saturday, March 11. March of Museums also commemorates Florida Heritage Month, which officially begins March 15 and continues through April 15.
Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of one (or all) of the opportunities to enjoy Tallahassee's many unique museums during March of Museums. For more information about March of Museums, please visit FloridaHeritageMonth.com, or join the conversation on social media using #MarchofMuseums.
