2019 Home School Experience

Fort Menendez

Attention: Home School Leaders

Because of our move, there will not be a September 2018 Home School Day Experience.

Old Florida Museum is pleased to announce the Winter Home School Experience.

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Help us get the word out to the Home School community if you know someone who may be interested!

Registration starts at 9:30 and the first tour leaves at 10:00 sharp. Each tour will be approximately 40 minutes. There is also a 60 minute lunch break so guests should plan to spend the day to visit the entire museum complex. This interactive experience is designed to expose students to daily living activities of the Timucua Indians, early Spanish settlers, exploration on the high seas and Florida Pioneer children, as well as the field of archaeology.

The cost is TBD per person for ages three and up at the door. If you call and pay prior to January 30, 2018 ; you will receive the discounted price of TBD per person. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. (*Please note: coupons or tickets purchased  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". The regular price for these tours for school children and adults is approximately $27.95 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, 70’ Spanish Caravel Sailing Ship replica and a mock archaeological dig, The day will start with tours at 10:00. During the 60 minute lunch period (11:45 to 12:45) you will have access to our outdoor covered and open air picnic areas. You may bring bagged lunches.
