I had high hopes for my visit to this historic house, but alas it was a tad disappointing. The second floor was closed, I think for some renovation work, so there wasn't too much to see while I was there. They played a short video...More

What a treasure! We enjoyed this free self-guided tour. There were many gems including the art work and artifacts. The nuns run this and are very informative. This us well worth the time and a donation, if the spirit moves you.

Stumbled on this gem of history because it was close to our B&B. Wonderful (and free) piece of St. Augustine history. They had many well preserved and interesting artifacts.

There was a seven minute DVD. However, speaking to the Sisters and having a history lesson from them was much more entertaining and thorough. It is free with a donation box. I spent more money other places received less information so it was easy to...More
