If you are a history buff or just enjoy seeing how it was so many years ago you have to stop here. There is a small fee to get in if you are not a resident. A guided tour with such a great person that knew so much about this house and the surrounding area. You will not be disappointed... More

This is an interesting little museum that charges a modest admission fee. The tour guide was an elderly gentleman who was very nice and informative. As a historian I would have liked to have seen original furniture and artifacts in the house. For those who like history and architecture, this is a good place to visit.

This is a very well done exhibit that exams all the periods and transitions in this residence.As a bonus they have a house of maps with detailed information and an additional museum exhibit once you have toured the hose and grounds.

I liked this. I was encouraged by a friend to go and found the grounds and tour worth the time spent there and like the history.

Interesting tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable but he sounded canned. A lot to see but a bit pricey. They talk about an exhibit of old maps, from the 1600's through the present however they were not real, just replicas.

Go first thing in the am, had a personal tour, since no one else was there. Guide was informative and very nice. A lot of history. There are mosquitos in the house sometimes, so wear bug spray.

The kids will be quite as they take in how the kids lived way back then. The beds, the chairs and tables where they ate the meals with the family. Come and step back into time!

I loved this museum. It's a great window into the history of the how the average person lived in the 1700s in St Augustine. The fact that the house was added to several times through the years makes it that much more interesting. The guide did a great job keeping both adult and kids interested. It's not a terribly long...

The tour was extremely interesting for adults, but I was surprised at how interesting our guide also made the tour for our grandkids. He told each of them what their chores might have been--from cooking to fetching water to emptying chamber pots--and what life would have been like for them. It definitely made an impression on the children--when our ten-year-old... More
