Travel Back in Time

The Spanish Military Hospital Museum gives visitors a chance to travel back in time to learn about medical practices and procedures in the Colonial Spanish Period of St. Augustine. The 40-minute fully-guided tour Spanish Military Hospital Museum offers a glimpse into another world, with demonstrations of "cutting edge" colonial surgery techniques by the Museum staff.
Showing guests how herbs used in colonial times were the origins of some of the most popular medicines today, the Apothecary offers herbs that can be found in the Apothecary's garden at the Museum.
Educational tours begin with one of the staff's "skilled surgeons" performing virtual surgery on a lucky volunteer, and include discussions of the importance of good health practices and details about some of the modern uses for colonial medicines.
