Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum

Be sure to save time to visit the Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum while in St. Augustine, a historic hotspot located on King Street.

Sometimes just referred to as 'The Government House', this museum served as the governor's official residence from c. 1710 until 1812, during the First and Second Spanish Period as well as the British Period. It sits within the heart of the historic downtown area overlooking the Plaza de la Constitucion. It is constructed of coquina, giving it a very distinct look.

Inside you will find exhibits, visitor information, an archive library, and several meeting rooms and offices. The museum is managed by the University of Florida and welcomes guests daily to check out the various educational exhibits inside. Explore the exhibit within the grand lobby that follows the history of the area from 1598 until today!
