Reenact what it was like to be a settler of Florida at the Old Florida Museum in Fort Menendez. The museum is set up to be interactive and guests will get the chance to dress up, play with props and interact with actors who are in character as people who lived in Florida during the 16th to 18th centuries. This is a great attraction for kids and adults who will also enjoy the historical aspects as you learn more about the settling of St Augustine and the surrounding area.
While visiting, you’ll get the chance to dip candles, watch how a loom works, ground corn, make ropes, observe wood working and partake in several other activities from the era. In addition, there are colonial games set up that will further teach your family about the history of the area. There is also an onsite gift shop selling items that are similar to the ones you’ll encounter while touring the Old Florida Museum.
Old Florida Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Adult ticket prices are $11 and prices for children ages 3 to 18 are $8. Children under 3 are free. Old Florida Museum is located at 259 San Marco Avenue in St Augustine.
