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.

Didn't know what to expect when I walked in, but it's a nice journey back in time. Very informative and the amount of antique bikes and appliances in this store is worth the price

Oldest Store Museum is in a collection of structures adjacent to Old Jail, and is at a major trolley stop half a mile north of Visitors Center and Castillo de San Marcos [the fort]. Surprisingly, it’s rated by TripAdvisor reviewers only as #51 of 151 things to do in Saint Augustine. Perhaps that’s because things like the 150-year-old steam-powered vacuum... More

My husband and I had received tickets so we visited. It was interesting but we probably wouldn't go again. It is just a little pricier than its worth. There are some neat things in there though.

Best tour for all ages. Our group ranged from 4,9,14,32,40, & 69. So much to see in the general store. Love that the tour is done as if you are in the 1900's there to purchase for yourself. Then when you make your way to the warehouse the tour continues to be fun & informative. Highly suggest.

Included in our Old Trolley Package was a tour of The Oldest Store Museum. After making a complete loop of the trolley tour we visited the store museum. George was our guide and his narration took us back to the early 1900’s and what our parents/grandparents lives were like. There were demonstrations of some early household and farm items and...

We arrived early for the first tour of the day 9.10am, only us and another couple to look around with our guides Hattie and George. It is very interesting and you have to remember that you are in the Oldest Store Museum and that the two 'guides' are playing out a role which you are expected to respond to, it... More
