The Arcadia Opera House, built in 1906, is a museum and enormous antique shop. It houses an amazing collection of historical items and the theater is in near original condition. Several paranormal investigations have taken place there and the Opera House is a well know haunted location.

Could have spent hours there, from room to room looking at all the antic and interesting stuff they have, but we ran out of time. This is a great antic shop, with a lot of history. Definitely a must do when in Arcadia.

It's always a pleasure to visit the Opera House for the history and treasures. This isn't exactly the best place on Oak Street to find a really valuable Bonafide antique, but it's great for "junk" pickers that don't want to spend a lot of money....More

We thought we couldn't miss the opportunity to see the space rebuilt in 1906. It was full of a wide range of antiques and stuff. It lacked high quality items with mostly items of regular American Life--not a whole lot different than the 20 plus...More

This is a great place to visit, even if you aren't an antique collector. The entrance could be an obstacle for many people. It is a very steep and long walk up stairs. If you can do it, iy is worth the effort. Many interesting...More

Wonderful, Wonderful Place. We loved it, James I believe was his name, answered all of our questions, even gave us a little bit of history. This was our second time here and I would definitely return.
