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.

This seemed geared to children more than adults. We felt like it was a waste of time and money; staff was nice.

My husband and I totally enjoyed ourselves. Our guide was knowledgeable, very nice, and we learned so much in our time. Even getting a bit of rain and having to slow down for a few was even nicer.

"Good History Lesson for Youngsters"

When my kids were small we took them to Dodge City - it was a re-created town within a fence that costs a family of four nearly $35 over 20 years ago. It wasn't even real. This is like that but really a better value - the kids are involved right off with interactive games and displays to gain and keep their attention. The re-enactors spent time painting the picture of early life in Old Florida. My date truly enjoyed herself and that is always worth the price of admission.

This is a great stop for learning interactively. Even though it was just my wife & I, we were pleasantly surprised to learn many new facts. If you have kids this is a Must as they can actually be physically engaged in most demonstrations & will love it! Fernando was exceptionally knowledgeable in his facts & presentation. So to sum it up, people of ALL ages will enjoy this interactive museum and you will leave with new knowledge of the era (Just remember they are closed on Sundays; neat gift shop too)
