Old Florida Museum offers four 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 1 hour. Groups may choose to do 1, 2, 3, or all 4 programs. The program areas fit 15 to 45 participants comfortably. Multiple classes can be accommodated in the facility at one time.

OUTLINE OF THE PROGRAMS

A guide in period dress greets the group upon arrival and gives an orientation with rules 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.
