Fun trip

Short museum to visit. The store keeper was charming and entertaining. Can be a little crowded as the space is not big at all, but a fun time.

Fun store with working antiques. The guide is dressed in period clothing and his dialogue is from period time. Funny dry sense of humor and free candy! The second part of the tour was just as great, I think the guide was Issac... He was great! He enjoyed using audience participation in his dialogue. Very nice tour all around.

A great tour through the old store with Isaac in the back of the store and someone in the front whose name I can't remember! But he sure did make us feel like we'd been transported back in time!

We found this tour to be very interesting as they had many old items from the general store that many people probably have never seen or haven't seen in many decades. We would recommend to anyone doing the trolley tours. Our only complaint was that we felt a little rushed as we lagged behind taking in their artifacts in the... More

For $3 more with the jail tour, you can tour the Old General Store & it is DEFINATELY worthwhile. It's a trip back to Little House on the Prairie as you go back in time with the clerks & they show you all the goods & items sold & their prices. The store offers everything from powdered milk, to gingham... More

We got this tour through a package I purchased with the trolley tour. It was pretty informative. Everytime I see the old stuff it makes me glad I don't have to use it today. It makes me really thankful for my washing machine! I am not sure I would pay a lot to visit outside of the package.

Also part of the Ghost Tour, this place has and interesting history. The collection of old bottles is really beautiful and the recipe of the "medicine" that was in them is fascinating. The history behind the owners of the store and the store itself was fun to hear and the store is quite spooky at night in the dark
