Old Florida Museum offers six unique "HANDS-ON" programs designed to be entertaining as well as educational. Students experience life in St. Augustine through the struggles and successes of its people during distinct time periods of Florida’s history.  All programs follow the Sunshine State Standards.  

Each program runs for 45 to 55 minutes. Groups may choose to do 1, 2 or all 6 programs. The program areas fit up to 30 participants comfortably. Multiple classes can be accommodated in the facility at one time.


A guide greets the group upon arrival and gives an orientation prior to entering.  The guide shares an interactive history of the time period. Students make a project that they will take home.  Students then have free time to participate in a variety of activity stations.
