This is a great museum for kids, my fiance and I had a fun time collecting coins along the way and the exhibits are very interactive and informative. I was disappointed when a big black cat jumped on the table and I was told not to pet him. Animal lover that I am it was hard to resist. At the... More

This is a great museum, you will learn so much while being entertained. This is a completely interactive and hands on experience, the kids earn gold coins they can spend in the gift shop. I highly recommend it! This is one of the best tours in St. Augustine, and that says a lot!

My family had a great time here, my 7 year old daughter especially liked it being a hands o tour. She was able to play games from the time period, make a shell necklace, dip a candle as well as get some amazing historical facts.

A family member who lives in St. Augustine recommended this place when I was looking for sightseeing things to do with my children. I went with my two boys, ages 9 and 5, and they loved every minute of it. The guides gave an interesting, kid-friendly presentation that made learning fun. My favorite moment was when one of the guides... More

My wife and I went, no kids,... Simply because we had done everything else in the area. The very knowledgeable and talented reenactors seemed to tailer the experience somewhat for present company instead of a rigid scrip,which made it more lively, entertaining,and fun. Our last guide Blanco was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, about a now extinct native people and there culture.... More

We got a Groupon for $6 so it was well worth it. We were in there about 1 1/2 hours. Most of it is all out doors. Our guide was very funny and we learned a lot. Games to play and we also made candles. A little hokey, but I love me some HOKEY. Go and enjoy.

Dont expect anything dazzling or spectacular from this place. it is not really home to much that would intrigue serious museum go-ers. This is probably better suited for entertaining children

Went here as part of a school fieldtrip. It was entertaining. Kids sat it an old school house classroom, wrote with a quill and ink, chalk, used a letter board then were treated to a Native American ceremony and traditional games of the time. Very enjoyable for the kids and adults.

We enjoyed the museum exhibits, but too expensive if not included in the price of the Old Towne Trolley.

First of all, this is a great winter/spring/fall activity as it is mostly outdoors and can be very hot during the summer. You will learn all about native american and spanish life in early florida. This museum is fully immersive. You'll even get a job and get paid and you can spend your money in the gift shop.
