The basic objectives of Castillo de San Marcos' museum program:
Researchers are encouraged to complete their preliminary research at libraries with a broader topical focus before approaching the archives at Castillo de San Marcos.
Researchers should submit a request by mail, phone, fax or email to the museum office ahead of time, detailing their research project to the curatorial staff. Requests for materials should be submitted with enough lead time to allow for the evaluation of the request and the scheduling of curatorial staff to oversee the research.
