Museum in St. Augustine, Florida

1500s house museum with period furnishings, a garden & exhibits on the region's Catholic heritage.

The Father Miguel O'Reilly House Museum is located a few doors down from the Ximenez-Fatio Boarding House Museum. The home has significant historic value, as it is one of the oldest structures in St. Augustine. Shortly after Fr. Miguel O'Reilly, an Irish priest in the service of the Spanish crown, bought the property in 1785 at the beginning of the Second Spanish Period, it became the parish rectory.

If you're Cuban, surely you've heard of Fr. Félix Varela, a man who fought tirelessly for Cuban independence. It was in this house that Father Miguel O'Reilly privately taught him, as a student, and he went on to become a defender of human and civil rights. Since 1866, the guardians of this sacred and historic space have been the Sisters of St. Joseph. You will see paintings and artifacts related to the Roman Catholic faith represented in this home, now serving as a museum.

While it was fascinating to look at all these things (and the free admission was great), it was not so great to have a nun watching you intently from her chair the moment you walked in. Her eyes followed us everywhere, as she suspiciously looked us down. To say my friend and I felt uncomfortable would be an understatement. There was nothing welcoming or friendly about her presence. Our tour guide (or perhaps, watchdog is the most appropriate term) was a pre-teen boy, who followed us everywhere. He was not very knowledgeable and unable to answer questions, which is expected due to his age, but why he was appointed to that position in the first place was incomprehensible.
