The Old Florida Museum at the Florida Agricultural Museum offers five unique immersive programs for student groups that are both entertaining and educational. Students experience Florida living through the struggles and successes of people during different periods of history. All programs follow the Sunshine State Standards.
Each program is 45 to 55 minutes long and groups may choose to participate in one, some, or all of the programs. The program area fits up to 30 students comfortably. Multiple classes can be at the museum simultaneously.
The field trip kicks off with a guide that greets the students upon arrival and orients them before they enter the museum. This costumed guide then shares an interactive history of the time period. After, students make a project that they take home. Finally, students participate in a variety of activity stations.
For more than 20 years, home school programming has also been available.
Group reservations are required for educational programs. School groups can check available dates, or make reservations, by calling (904) 824-8874.
