This was a really neat place. They had just about every kind of antique you could think of. We enjoyed it and would recommend a visit.

This is also a very interesting sight to see, with many fun items. This attraction is half guided and half self guided. Nice add on when seeing the old jail. You'd be interested to know of all the business this little store got and the "famous" customers it had. A lot more history to it then you think. It looks... More

We went to the store as an inexpensive add on to the jail. The jail is terrific. The store is informative and the tour guides has a good sense of humor.

Get intrigued by the latest gadgets and gizmos that was in the rage way back in the day. Get a glimpse of how things evolved to what we now enjoy today! Lots of things to see especially if you sign up for the Trolley Tour.

I know I should have been impressed by this and how old it was (by American standards) but I just thought it was a bit strange (weird figures) and smelly.

Honestly, if I had gone in the morning, I would have enjoyed it more. By the time we went I was hot and tired. Still, The male docent in the front was very good, as was the girl who spoke in the warehouse. The historical aspect was very interesting, with good facts and good delivery.

We really enjoyed the Oldest Store museum, got to see things we never seen or knew were ever invented. Wish there was a little gift shop that you could buy replicas of old things or old candy. The candy canes that were passed out were stale, but was a neat added surprise but I hope they get some new ones...

Fun trip to the past. Costumed characters demonstrate various turn of the 20th century items. Many things to touch. Many things that were unrecognizable but once explained by the knowledgeable guide, they made sense.
