Museums

The entire town of St. Augustine is a living and breathing museum - offering a piece of history around every corner, a historic site with a story to tell. Just walking through the city you can find a monument or plaque marking each site as a historic one with its own place and function in our shared history. Tour the old buildings and imagine how it was for the people of the past to live and work in this ancient port city. History even envelopes the architecture of the old city's museums. The museums here are replicas of Spanish castles; they are historic wooden classrooms, fortifications, military hospitals that date back to the 1700s and living history sites that can help you travel back in time. So see the exhibits, and check out the treasures and artifacts hidden away in the museums of St. Augustine.
