Often touted as one of the Southeast's finest private collections of rare and unique collectibles, the museum also offers a new feature-solar panels. Created with help from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the paneling educates youth on the benefits of alternative energy as well as protects fuel for future generations. The museum houses the largest solar panel system in the state, as well as "green" items from the carpet and flooring to the electrical fixtures.
"It's more than a museum, it's a journey," says DeVoe Moore, museum owner and longtime Tallahassee resident. "The collections will truly take you back to your childhood, whatever era that may be."
