History Beyond the Classroom
The Oldest House Museum Complex offers an exceptional learning opportunity for students. We offer a private, interactive guided tour of the Gonzalez-Alvarez House. The house reveals evidence of the First and Second Spanish, British, and American occupations of St. Augustine, and gives students a first-hand sense of each period and its characteristics. Our docents explain the daily lives of the settlers, and foster insightful discussions on building use, archaeology, lifestyle and culture of the Florida frontier.
We invite you to consider the Oldest House and its museums when choosing your school trip for the upcoming year. School group admission is $3.00 per student and $4.00 for each accompanying adult. For every 15 students, one adult is free.
