“Amazing structure and garden!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We did not go inside, but, the outside, was just incredible! I loved it! Again, the architectural design was so beautiful. The surrounding landscape- the grass, flowers and palm trees, just was soothing to me. I will stop here and spend some time inside when I go there in April.
This is another highlight of St. Augustine!

“The demonstration of antique music boxes was great”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

A nice selection of various artifacts, with emphasis on what the well to do in the early 1900s would have to impress their friends. Some elaborate furniture, baths from the old hotel alcazar, personalized shaving mugs, silver, etc. Took about 3 hours to doself- tour (including presentation of music boxes).

“Excellent Museum Visit”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The volunteers were extremely knowledgable, friendly and had sense of humor. Took a long time to see the entire building ... mostly self-guided ... and it was worth it!
