Informative!

Kathleen was very entertaining and knowledgable. It may be geared for kids, but I enjoyed it immensely. She made it fun to learn about the history.

We took our granddaughter while she was visiting us in St. Augustine. She loved the place. A few days later she wanted to go back. They have a lot of hands on stuff and kids will love it. Well worth a visit.

Fort Menendez is a little fort, located about 6 miles south of St Augustine, on US1 South.. Everyone goes to the big fort in downtown , but this one is a local favorite. You have to get on a pontoon boat, run by the National Park Service for the 4 minute ride to the other side of the Intercostal, because... More

we went to see this fort via a boat. The fort is part of the National Park Service and is only accessible via boat. It was originally a fort used to communicate To the Fort at St. Augustines.

This is a tourist trap plain and simple. You are better off spending your money at the Castillo where you can see the real history of St Augustine.

This was so much more than I expected! Cannot say enough wonderful things about this attraction. My kids had so much fun! They got to dress up, face paint, make candles, archeological dig, play games, and collect coins to trade in for prizes. It is an interactive museum for kids and I don't even think they realized how much they... More

This was fun. We got there about the time they fired the cannon. We also got to have our picture made with their military hats on. Everyone working there was dressed as the soldiers from that period dressed, and they acted the part also. I didn't know much about the place until I went. I'm glad I went!
