It's $5 to get in. You walk in, see a small shed sized building described as the kitchen for the teachers but protected from visitors entering. To the right is the one-room schoolhouse 75% contained behind barriers. The couple minute animatronic teacher discussion is mildly informative but nothing special. After that there is a ten yard circular path around a... More

This is a nice building to say you saw, but don't waste your time visiting the inside. It's just a little schoolhouse like a million others, and it just happens to be old.

I enjoyed this place quite a bit. There's some great interactivity, and the theme of the tour is "learning your lesson in school." There are some interesting displays set up, especially in the outside kitchen. Inside there are some animatronics that give you the "lesson" and some really interesting items on display from the schoolhouse. Be sure to read the... More

This schoolhouse was built literally not long after America was founded--and stands to this day WITHOUT any reconstructive modifications!! Unfortunately, the 2nd floor ( teacher's residence ) is closed off--but there is a small view mirror allowing a tight view of the area. Somewhat cheesy automaton presentation, but gives a good presentation of life back---way back--in "the day".

I definitely recommend making this one of your stops while in St. Augustine. It was an interesting visit, although....our guide wasn't quite as knowledgeable as we would have liked. For example, the plant she pointed out as being Indigo, was actually a weed. She could not tell us what part of the plant the dye came from. Nor could she... More

We didn't go in because, even at $5 a person, we didn't think it would be worth it. As my husband and I discussed whether we should try it anyway, the ticket person started fussing at us as I took a few picture of the OUTSIDE of the building. Needless to say, we did not go in.

The schoolhouse is the oldest wooden structure in St. Augustine and it's amazing that it has survived time and storms. The tour is interesting, but the kids didn't care for the animated model of the school master--they thought it was creepy. However, they really enjoyed looking around the building, itself, the garden and out-building. They especially enjoyed playing with the... More

Fun old building, the display was cheezee but it was cool to be in such an old structure. Interesting, but not quite as much info as I'd hoped for. I did really like the photo of one of the graduating classes. I thought it was slightly overpriced, but maybe restoration is expensive.
