The Florida State Museum began in 1891 at the Florida Agricultural College in Lake City as a teaching tool. In 1906, it moved to the newly built University of Florida in Gainesville. In 1917, the State Legislature designated the facility as the Florida State Museum, a name it kept until 1988 when it was renamed the Florida Museum of Natural History. In 1937, the state museum moved to the Seagle Building, then in 1970 it moved to the newly built Dickinson Hall. Finally, in 1997, it moved to a new museum building called Powell Hall.
