The free candy was nice for kids, the tour guides full description and realistic details on buying n pickup of items. Interacting for all items for delivery was "Two Weeks!!".

George and Gertie did an awesome job in their roles while we were there. George actually had me thinking he was trying to sell me some of the artifacts. They made a great team and I am recommending that my children go there and experience this tour if they do nothing else.

My boyfirend and I took a tour of the oldest store during our recent visit to St. Augustine. I enjoyed looking around at all the antique items they had. I also enjoyed listening to both tour guides.

The oldest store museum allows you to step back to a time before specialty stores and supercenters reigned supreme. The general store was the place to socialize and purchase anything that couldn't be made by hand. Yes, it was a little touristy and the animated people (a butcher, accountant and his dog) were very cheesy but this place actually contains... More

This is a must see! The "shopkeeper" was very good at peddling his wares. You step back in time walking into the store which is packed with antique goods. Most of which we were able to touch and handle, unlike most places/museums where you'll find these things. The best was the back room which was stocked to the rafters with... More

This museum is an interesting little place, lots of various and sundry items and plenty of information. The only part I was not especially pleased about is that we purchased tickets for all 4 of us, but no one was taking the tickets! We just walked right in!

Ulysses did a great tour of the oldest store museum and tried to sell me every item in the store at the original 1908 prices. Harriet and him did a great job.

A very small room with a large counter, a worker in period dress, and countless period looking items on display. The outside of the building is in disrepair (beyond trying to make it look old, it actually has holes in the walls). The inside of the building looks great actually. The worker was basically there to just answer questions and... More
