Thank you for your interest in bringing your school group to Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. The park is in a phased reopening with some services unavailable due to COVID-19. School group reservations are suspended until further notice, along with formal ranger programs and historic weapons. Our website will continue to be updated with the latest information. Please check back with us later. If you are looking for a virtual classroom experience, we have a virtual field trip, live distance learning, and other digital resources available. Please visit our Education page.
A maximum capacity of 250 visitors in the historic fort at any time will be in effect. Regular entrance fees apply. If schools choose to visit, they will have to wait in line with the visiting public for entrance into the fort. The entire group may not be able to enter together unless the capacity of the fort can accomodate them. Wait times vary by day of the week, time of the day, weather, and visitation. Park partners are offering perimeter tours. Their information can be found below. Thank you.
