Our grandchildren loved this and we all learned so much! Don't go without kids. Allow plenty of time so that they can interact with all the station's and earn plenty of coins.

We took our almost 2 year old daughter here and she had a great time. Being allowed to touch and explore while we were also learning from the tour guide (senoir Blanco) meant we could all enjoy this attraction. We will be taking her again next time we visit.

Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed a well guided tour with interactive, hands on experiences of our oldest city's history. Educational family fun at it's finest. Staff was pleasant and knowledgeable. We were very pleased with our visit!

Loved the history here. So exciting to see the history of the war that was fought at the Fort. St.Augustine is a beautiful old city with lots of history.Fun for young and old.

I always learn something new here! Well worth the money to visit. It is rich with Florida history and Native American history. Our tour guides Esperanza and Alexia were phenomenal! The hands on exhibit is all authentic and interactive. The only thing that you can't touch is the spring. LOVE this attraction. Great for any age!

Our school visited Fort Menendez on a cold, windy day, but none of the kids minded. They all had a blast! The guides were great with kids, kept them interested and laughing!

This place is good to visit if you have small children. It is very educational and interesting. The tour guide, Maria, her real name was Olivia, just like my daughter, was very patient and works very well with children just like a teacher. She showed us the different parts of the museum, for example, the Spanish fort or garrison, the... More

Brought the kids after visiting with my fiance a year prior. This time they had the big replica of a ship finished and you could explore that as well as all of the other cool things they have. You start out as "passengers" heading to the new world. Someone can volunteer to be a soldier, and get a weapon (fake... More

First of all, scan the coupon books for percentage off tickets: don't pay full price. The last time we stayed in Saint Augustine, our hotel was very close to Fort Menendez and our son wanted to go. We didn't, because we thought it was going to be total cheese. This trip, we made it one of the first things we... More
