Definitely a nice place to visit. You get some interesting history of why it's the oldest school and how teaching was back then. The price of admission is low, about $5 and only takes a short time to get through the exhibit and animatronic teacher. A must see if your in St. Augustine.

It is impressing that this building has survived so much time. There are interesting facts to be learned even though it is so small. We enjoyed our quick walk through

After all of the decades of coming to St. Augustine, this was my first visit, since we took our ten year old niece with us. So much history! It was really cool! :) Of course, she loved the Privy (Outhouse)! ;) The garden was beautiful! :) Worth the visit! :)

It's cool that the school is still standing but it's basically a garden area. There is a quick audio portion of the history of the school, but the whole tour was completed in less than 10 minutes. Finishing with a walk through the giftshop. There is a large house behind the garden that looks like it's being used for storage.... More

For the quick stop, it is a bit pricey. I am a teacher and was traveling with one, and we enjoyed it. There are coupons for it in coupon books, so make sure to use one if you go.

This is a very small building set in a garden with lots of plants bushes and other garden features such as 'the meditation room'. We also saw a few real squirrels in the bushes. The Old School House is a two store building, but the public can only have access to the ground floor where you can see and hear... More

This place was really interesting and fun to visit! Awesome to see such a historical building! Seeing the photo of one of the graduating class's students returning for a reunion was particularly awesome! Plus the garden is beautiful!

The schoolhouse is small but filled with lots of interesting items. It's like stepping onto the little house on the Prarie. It's where I learned why a dollar is called a buck! Also that St Augustine is the oldest city in the US. There was a small area of farming equipment etc out back when we were there. All in... More
