What a wonderful place of old original working items you could buy in a store years ago! Everything is in working condition. Very enjoyable!

Don't pass this up if you enjoy shopping in antique store. I do & have a large collection but found many items I was not familiar with plus they explain many items in detail

Very cool old store! The tour was fun and our guide seemed to enjoy her job, showing us all the "new-fangled contraptions" available for purchase at the store. It wasn't a long tour, but was fun to see the items available for purchase from long ago. My first impression upon walking in was that it was like being in the... More

I was less interested in this than my husband was, he like this tour much more than I did. Lots of old items you would have found in a general store of its vintage. A local said the shop keeper kept one of everything he offered in storage in case he had to "warranty" something, and that is why all... More

They hype this place up but it isn't worth it, just a snack place with some signs and displays but nothing at all impressive, I would not recommend it unless it comes with the package.

Jennifer G, Guest Relations Manager at The Oldest Store Museum, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to share. 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 the “quietest milk shake making machine” for...

This tour was part of the trolley package, otherwise we most likely paid for the tour. The Old Store has an incredible inventory of medicine, food, household appliances and more from the early 1900's. There are two ladies in character as a clerk and inventory manager who made the tour interesting with their commentary and conversation with the tourists.

The Old Store is across from the jail and the museum (& at a trolley stop), so is very easy to visit. It is also part of the Old Town Trolley tour package. We had very low expectations but they were exceeded by this tour. The tour guides were quite interesting and did a great job of explaining many of... More
