It got old to us that EVERYTHING in St Augustine has an entry fee and the schoolhouse is no different, a five dollar entry for a ten minute attraction. The school house display itself was ok, I work in schools so it was of special interest to me.

This is a great place to see. You can walk through a historic place. The gardens are nice. If you are looking for a place to spend lots of time, this will not be your place. It is the oldest schoolhouse in America, but apparently, not much happened here. It would be better if they had re-enactors. Still a good... More

Education. Building is well preserved. Can't go upstairs. Self-guided tour. Garden is nice. Wish they had tour guide.

I thought it was cute, but not worth the 5.00 dollars. The presentation was less than 10 min and honestly I was expecting a little more info on what subjects they taught; how kind of a day, etc. It's mostly written or on a display. Will not come back to see it though.

What a wonderful experience to see how children actually had school over 100 years ago. It was authentic and the price was fantastic. We paid $9.90 for two people to visit it. You can enjoy the small tour at your pace and at the end they have a free diploma you can take with you. Being a teacher, I really... More

We have been there twice with our guest. It is a great place to visit. Very interesting info on the way school was back then. Very interesting items that were used in schools back then. I really love the chains that held the school down in case of storms.Don't miss this attraction.

I found this very interesting! I loved walking around the grounds and seeing how the education system worked. The store was very cute after the tour.

We came here with three school aged children and they really enjoyed it. The schoolhouse was built over 200 years ago. There is a animated story with the characters in the little old school house, teachers and children speaking their stories. It would not be enjoyable on a rainy day as much of the attraction is outside. The animated part... More

I first visited this historic site 25 years ago. Nothing has changed, but we had guests from out of town who were interested in seeing some of the area historical highlights, and it was worth a second visit after so many years. Admission is only $4.95 adults and $3.95 under age 13. That hasn't changed much either in 25 years.... More

This was a nice place to stop by while in St. Augustine. The schoolhouse is set up with a recording about life at the school. Unfortunately you can't see much besides the main floor where the schoolhouse display is. We were surprised it was in such good condition for being so old.
