The museum is okay, but there are other places in St. Augustine that I would go to first if I was short on time. The trolley guides give excellent town tours, the jail is mind blowing, lighthouse view is unbelievable....St. Augustine is a very fun town.

Constance and Abigail made this tour fun. The hubby and 11 year old loved it - he got to shuck some corn. Make sure to buy ticket from trolley and get a discount when touring the jail too. Stop #1 has great things to see! Favorite stop!

We probably wouldnt have paid separately if this didnt come included in our sightseeing package. It was really neat to see the old items sold in stores back then and be immersed into that time period. We probably were in and out in about 30 minutes.
