The actors were quite good at this old store, but I think it could have been even better if we had realized that he wanted us to interact. By the time I figured that out, it was too late as he had given up on us. They all did a great job though. The most interesting thing to me at... More

This is an interesting tour. Small museum with some interesting things to look at-old washing machines, coffee grinders, medicine, etc. Tour guides dressed as period shop keepers. Free candy when you start the tour.

This was a waste of time and took about 5 minutes to go through. The entire walk through was boring after the main store area. I would never recommend it to anyone!

I was sorry to read that your tour with us did not meet your expectations. The Old Store 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... More

There are some great nicely preserved relics in the store, and I like how the "characters" bring the museum to life. There are tons of items in the front part of the store on display, and even more in the warehouse part of the store. I was really impressed with the condition of everything (and I even recognized some of... More

Take the trolley! Definitely worth the trip! Buy a combo ticket and see several museums for one low price.

The lady we had as our tour guide was very interactive and lots of fun. She was really engaging with all the kids in our group and made sure they had lots of candy sticks and got to hear and try everything, multiple times when they asked! It was really sweet. The museum was very interesting with so many antique... More

Waited in the heat for our tour and was let down. The male tour guide was great and made it more interesting. My husband is older and really enjoyed the museum. You can get a discount if you purchase your ticket through Old Town Trolley.

Many of the items in the store were interesting. The "fault" my family found was the characters in the store continually acted as if they were in the time period. Prices for items were given, but there was no price comparison for the value in today's dollars so the meaning was lost to the kids.
