Great discovery!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We’ve been to St Augustine multiple times and had just discovered this house! Stefanie did a fantastic job at not only describing the various aspects of the property but also as it pertained to the different eras of recent St Augustine history. (Particularly the suffragette movement, which we had never realized was so prominent here.)

One of the most interesting tours
Mar 2021
This was one of our favorite museum houses. The recorded audio tour is one of the best. It covers the history of the buildings as well as everyday life. The rooms were authentically furnished! Would recommend a visit.

loved this house tour
Mar 2021
this house costs $10 to tour and an audio tour comes with it. You get to tour the majority of the complex with information about building materials as well as who and when lived there and what they did. I enjoyed that you get to go in each room and walk among the furniture and flooring. So many old homes have areas roped off, but here you can walk around and be among the things as a person who lived there would. Of course, they ask you not to sit on the furniture. Good place for families with children.

Lovingly Curated
Jan 2021 • Solo
With Covid closing my usual haunts, I’ve taken to visiting the smaller museums in town and I am very glad I did. This museum is wonderfully done. The rooms are at your leisure and you can actually walk about the space and examine everything up close - no touching of course. This allows for a closer examination of history than most places will ever let you. The audio tour by room is very engaging and full of interesting observations and tid bits. You can tell this place is well loved. The director, Roger, was there and is an engaging person to talk to. Lovely experience and highly recommended.

Great Historic Site and Self Guided Tour
Sep 2020 • Couples
My girlfriend and I had a great time doing the self guided audio tour. The town was fairly busy today, but we were the only people at the site. They also offer guided tours. Very educational and pretty as well!
