We were looking for a fun activity to do with our young boys and a friend recommend the Old Florida Museum to us. We were pleasantly surprised how great it was. The kids had a blast walking around and trying out everything. This place is very hands on, which is great for young children. Our tour guides were very informational... More

This was a very hands on museum. They made it very fun and interesting for kids. If riding the Ripleys red train this would be at the most northern stop and I will be back for sure. It took us about 1 1/2 hours but could have spent another 30 min.

Accompanied my 7 year old here in a field trip. Didn't have time to do everything they had to offer. Am considering bringing the whole family for a visit so we can see more. Good time for the kids.

My 10 year old daughter and I had an enjoyable and informative trip to the Old Florida Museum. We live in St. Augustine and had been meaning to visit the museum since we typically enjoy most of St. Augustines attractions. The experience was better than I expected. This attraction is one of the newer ones relative to most attractions in... More

We went here in the late morning and found the people there to be first-rate, from the lady who operated the visitor center to the guides, Bella and Maria. It is sort of a guided tour of Ft. Menendez and the restoration and artifacts are very impressive. You get to walk around and see different areas, from living quarters to... More

Old Florida Museum is a great first stop if you are just getting started on the history of St. Augustine! "Maria" guided us through life in St. Augustine in the 1500s. We dipped candles, played games, explored the loom, made a wattle fence, ground corn two different ways, target practiced with native "darts" and got to touch everything we possibly... More

This is a historical, outdoor museum for kids. They can touch and play with a lot of stuff. Great for toddlers and elementary school kids.
