Disabled Access:

Due to the age and limited access of The Oldest House, we offer a video for those with disabilities.

Program Type:

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.

Teachers can also use our school resources on our website under the "For Teachers" tab to help prepare students for an excursion to the Oldest House and St. Augustine. 

We invite you to consider the Oldest House and its museums when choosing your school trip for the upcoming year.
