Description
Colonial Quarter Museum Photos (11)

Take a trip back in time to colonial St. Augustine at the Colonial Quarter Museum; the museum is filled with displays, artifacts, and reenactments that are sure to impress any history-lover. If you have ever wanted to experience what it was like to live in colonial times, just wander through the Colonial Quarter. Here, you will be able to explore replicas of a 16th century Spanish 'First City', 17th century 'Fortified Town', 18th century 'Garrison Town', and an 18th century British 'The 14th Colony' display. As you work your way through the eras, stop and meander around shops and eateries.

First City: At the First City, guests will be able to participate in a plethora of activities. As well as seeing what life was like 'back then', they will also be able to learn about the origins of St. Augustine and see a sailing ship being built right before their eyes. 

Fortified Town: At this 17th century reproduction, visitors will be treated to a demonstration at the blacksmith shop, see how bartering works at the market, and watch a musket drill. 

Garrison Town: The Garrison Town provides a look into a fort soldier's home and a local leatherwork shop. 

The 14th Colony: At the 14th Colony, discover 18th century British life. Here, guests can see a colonial print ship, watch historic preservation, participate in a cannon drill, and see the original flags that flew over this old city. 

Other activities at the museum include

  • Digging for artifacts
  • Wandering along the coastline
  • Scaling a 35-foot watch tower
  • Dancing on the Market Stage
  • Visiting the gift shop
  • Dining at the Taberna
  • Partaking in drinks at the Pub

No matter what you do, you are sure to find that colonial Spanish life was interesting and colorful at the Colonial Quarter Museum.
