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

We attended the oldest wooden schoolhouse tour while in St. Augustine. It was well done and informative. I would like to have seen upstairs but it was closed off. While we enjoyed it, it felt a little short for the money we paid...you can see the presentation and tour the grounds all in about 5-7 minutes, if that.

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

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
