Old Florida Museum is pleased to announce the
Ninth Florida Home School Experience
Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 9:30 to 1:30.
Attention: Home School Leaders
Old Florida Museum is pleased to announce the Ninth Florida Home School Experience on Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 9:30 to 1:30. This will be the best Home School Experience ever, thanks to our customers feedback we are learning and improving each time! Please help us get the word out to the Home School community!
Our first sessions will begin at 9:30a.m. Each tour will be approximately 45 minutes, and this year we are including a break between sessions so guests should plan to spend approximately four hours to visit the entire museum complex. Space is limited so please call 904-824-8874 for reservations now.
This interactive experience is designed to expose students to daily living activities of the Timucuan Indians, early Spanish settlers, and Florida Pioneer children, as well as the field of archaeology. We will reinforce some of the things they learned in the Game Zone at the Pioneer Barn. Every child can participate in the games.
The cost is $16.95 per person for ages three and up at the door. If you call and pay in advance; you will receive the discounted price of $14.95 per person. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. (* Please note: coupons or tickets purchased or received from outside retailers are for our General Public tour only and may not be used for the Home School Experience. ) These are guided educational tours, and are not to be confused with the General Public admission to the museum which is primarily "edutainment" in the Indian and Spanish areas only. The general public tour does not include the Archaeology, Florida Cracker Pioneer, or Pioneer Barn Game Zone. The regular price for these tours for school children and adults is $27.50 per person.
Costumed Guides will provide history and instruction in the use of tools and games for each historical time period. Participants will also complete a take-home project in each program area. Old Florida Museum includes a Timucuan Indian council house and chief’s hut, a Spanish wattle and daub house, a Florida Pioneer one-room schoolhouse, and a mock archaeological dig, This year we are doing things a little differently (as a result of your feedback). We will start the day with two tours at 9:30 and 10:15, and then at 11:00 and 11:30 we will have games in the Pioneer Barn. You can opt to attend either Game time, or spend the whole hour at lunch if you like. There are several restaurants within walking distance or you are welcome to bring your own lunches and enjoy them in our outside picnic area or at the park across the street. At 12:00 we will begin our afternoon sessions, with our last session starting at 12:45 and ending the day at 1:30. We invite you to visit the Old Florida General Store, featuring many unusual and old-fashioned items.
The Old Florida Museum is located at 259 San Marco Avenue at the corner of State Road 16 in St. Augustine, FL. Entrance is through the Old Florida General Store, which faces San Marco Avenue.
