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!

My Husband and I visited Fort Menendez just out of curiosity. Upon entering the gift shop, we were greeted by a friendly face and offered a tour. We absolutely loved the guided tour. It was a fun and amazing step back in history.

Ft. Menendez is a wonderful place for kids to learn about the early lives of both the Spanish and Indians in early St. Augustine. It's a hands-on environment that makes learning history fun. Our granddaughter has visited three times and intends to go back again and again when she visits. (She's currently eight.) I heartily recommend a visit.

I have driven by Ft. Menendez several times, so today I went inside. Starting with the gift shop/ticket counter, everyone was friendly and helpful. Both tour guides were very informative and entertaining. Laura, the second guide, was extremely good. She was able to keep the tour interesting for the adults, while maintaining to keep the young children engaged.

Love this fort. It was very hands on and the kids had a blast. You get to make candles and my middle son got to be the helper. They also have a cat that stays there and the cat was very frienldy.

As a teacher I appreciate the amount of information presented during this tour. As a crafter I wanted to try the quill and ink instead of having the guide scribble on my passbook. I loved all the hands on activities but felt rushed to participate until we got to the Timuquan village.
