This is a fun little tour with very energetic guides that show u all the nick nacks of the era. My only complaint is that I thought it was a bit overpriced for the size of the museum.

We had Ulysses as our tour guide and were actually the only two on the tour at that time. We enjoyed it. Tour guide knew his stuff and was a fun character to interact with. Worth the fee.

The store had lots of interesting items, but it was pretty packed in a small space. Once again, the guide was playing a character so we didn't care for that. In the back there were more gadgets and a different guide, but there's not enough time in either area to get enough information. Too many items in a small space... More

From the moment you walk in, you feel like your immersed in a time machine back to where our ancestors had to manually use machines and appliances that didn't use electricity. (Think "Little House on the Prairie") The tour guides are dressed in period clothes, and are very informative. The nice things about this museum is everything is setup as... More

It is interesting the items that in the general stores of the past had and the cost. The staff made it interesting by dressing in old time clothing and explaining the items they had. The problem is they do not let you take your time looking and try to get you out fast.

I think this is another attempt to persuade tourists to part with their money. It is another freebie in addition to a Trolly package, but, as in all things, you received what you paid for it. Again, something to do while waiting for a Trolley.

We had taken the tour a few years back and remembered it being okay. We were pleasantly surprised to find they had changed things up a bit and made it even more enjoyable. I was especially impressed by the young girl in the back warehouse, Hattie. At first I thought she was very shy and nervous, then I realized it... More

I didn't expect much on this, but was pleasantly surprised. The number of antique items in this store is amazing. Even better was the fact that tour guides are dressed up and play as if it is that time period. Even gave the pricing of many of the items (back in the day). If we could all only go back... More

This is a place worth visiting. It takes you wayyyyy back in time to see how our ancestors lived and survived. The collection of things is unbelievable. I found the display of old time remedies to be very interesting. The price of things back when...also gave us a chuckle. The young lady who gave our tour ( I am so... More
