This place could be so neat... but they make it into a tour. The tour is rather boring, and the actors are weird. I was on quite a few tours in St Augustine, and was use to people being in character, but I was highly confused by the characters in here. I felt as though this would have been more... More

Thank you for taking the time to share, by way of introduction, the Old Store museum is packed full of some of the “Latest and best time saving miracles from the 1900’s”. Our friendly clerks, butcher and snake oil salesman should have demonstrated some of the very latest inventions for turn-of –the century-living, including, but not limited to the “quietest... More

This museum takes you back in time with actors and is a must see for the whole family. We did this and the jail. This was by far my favorite BC the actors were great!

This is a fun spot loaded with authentic merchandise and was fun to explore with guides dressed in period attire. Right in the depot of the Old Town Trolley.

The characters were great with the kids and interacted really well with them! It was kind of a long tour and they show you old things you could have bought in the day. It went on and on and on and on. Pass over if you have other things on your list. As an adult I enjoyed seeing old things... More

Enjoyed the guided tour of the Oldest Store Museum! Normally $9.00 we got it for $6 with our Trolley Combo. It's in the same parking lot as the Old Jail and the History Museum. The store had amazing historical items that I never knew existed including a corn husker, a very loud floor mounted hand milk-shaker, a cream & milk... More

We loved this tour! The reference back to old vintage products and goods from 150 years ago was reminiscent of an era gone by. The scary thing is we remembered some of those things from our childhood growing up in rural Pennsylvania 50-60 years ago. Very fun!
