If you just haven’t seen enough of old stuff, you can always spend another 30 minutes wandering through this museum documenting 400 years of Florida’s past, focusing on the life of Henry Flagler, the Civil War, and the Seminole Wars. Highlights are a collection of toys and dolls, mostly from the 1870s to the 1920s, and a replica of a Spanish galleon filled with weapons, pottery, and treasures, along with display cases filled with gold, silver, and jewelry recovered by treasure hunters. A typical wattle-and-daub hut of a Timucuan Indian in a forest setting illustrates the lifestyle of St. Augustine’s first residents, and a traditional Florida Cracker trading post shows you how shopping was done back in the day. Ideal for a rainy day if need be.
