"Family fun"
Reviewed October, 2015
Walk through time behind these walls. Lots of fun for the kids with 400 year old games, touch different displays, walk through the houses, see how the Spanish and native Americans lived.
Tip: They do give you a free bottle of water!

"Just good fun!"

This place will help you understand how the Spanish settlers and the natives lived and interacted. Daily life was easy to imagine and the guides were in period dress. A great place for kids since there are some hands-on activities. Our guide, Laura, was new and apprehensive, but she was really into what she was doing and learning more as she trained. She will become a great guide for future visitors!

Kids really linked this place as they got to touch everything and explore this replica fort. Fun for ther whole family. Found a coupon for one free child ticket per paid adult ticket, soo that was a plus. Kids got to grind corn, play old fashioned games, make fishing nets, wear Indian face paint, see what life was like in early Florida. Free parking. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

"Educational and FUN!"

An amazing, hands-on history lesson, for kids and adults alike! Our tour guides, Amelia and another woman who's name I unfortunately didn't catch, were great. All 3 of my kids (including the "too cool" preteen) had fun learning games, skills, and traditions of centuries gone by. My daughter was even able to dress up as an Olata in the Indian Village. All three kids were elated to find shark teeth, fools gold, and shells in the "archeological dig" site. The gift shop was reasonably priced and had lots of items to reinforce what the children learned. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for hands on, historical fun.
