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 9:00 and the first tour leaves at 9:30 sharp. Each tour will be approximately 40 minutes. This interactive experience is designed to expose students to daily living activities of the Timucua Indians, early Spanish settlers, 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 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.

Costumed Guides will provide history and instruction in the use of tools and games for each historical time period.  Participants may 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 house, a Florida Cracker Homestead and a mock archaeological dig, 

The day will start with tours at 9:30 and end at 12:30. There is an open air pavilion if you wish to stay and enjoy your bagged lunch.

At the end of the morning sessions you can choose to revisit any of the programs if you should have any questions or want to redo any of the activities.

We are just a short drive from downtown St Augustine and Daytona Beach. You may want to make plans to visit these locations after your morning with us.

See you there!

Educational Director
