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.

There are two picnic areas one tree covered located just outside the Pioneer Program area and the other is a covered picnic area just outside the General Store. These areas can accommodate 80 to 100 people. They are available on a first come/first served basis; we are unable to reserve either of the picnic areas for specific groups. There is an additional overflow seating area that can fit 25 to 30 people, and a park across the street to accommodate larger groups eating lunch here.
Group reservations are required in advance. To check available dates or make reservations please call (800) 813-3208 or (904) 824-8874
