It is a small building located in the historic area, and takes only a few minutes to see, but is interesting. Helps you realize what school was like in early St. Augustine. The buildings still standing in this city are marvelous - this one included. Neat little place.

Took my grandson who wanted to see the differences from then and now. He will be in 1st grade this fall. He stood and and listened tentatively to the "professor" tell about the school. He was really interested in the dunce cap and stairway dungeon techniques used on unruly children. He didn't believe they did that. He enjoyed ringing the... More

This is amazing place. The old school house is totally unquestionably a place you want to see. It looks like the school is going to fall at any time, so I would suggest that you see it before it's no longer standing.

We liked the Oldest Wooden School House very much! The classroom was on the 1st floor of the School with wax animatronic teacher and pupils. The teacher's family lived upstairs in the School House. The family kitchen was in another small building because it was too much of a fire hazard at that time. The gardens were so pretty. There... More

We learned a bit about how the school "system" worked back then and how many students attended, etc. It was interesting, yes, but a very short excursion. You probably won't spend longer than 20 minutes here.

it would be good for small children but as an adult not worth paying to see. very small room with wax figures talking and having school. a few pictures and another room for a kitchen. very small garden and no real comfortable place to sit.

It is old, small and touching! The original premisses have been neatly organized as a small museum, reminding us of schools and teachers at heroic times! Visiting historical St. Augustine, spare some time to stroll along the old school house, its garden, kitchen and well. Enjoy!

The old Schoolhouse is a popular sight and landmark. I took a photo of my wife standing beside it. It is amazing that it is still standing.
