Not expecting much on this tour so we were pleasantly surprised when we took it. Our friendly store clerk Isaac was a great actor, he really made us feel like we were in the 1900's! Aside from the items in the store and all the history & informative facts he shared, he let our grandson pick an ear of dried... More

This was a fun & friendly tour, guided by Jeb. He was great in character and it truly felt like we were walking back in time through the old general store. Many different old age items, some I had never heard of and some I had seen before. Worth taking 30 minutes and touring.

Now this was a fun & interesting tour. We had 2 excellent guides who stayed in character. Hattie & Annie did a great job telling stories of the items that were sold in the store during the years it was in operations. Like the way thy demonstrated the implements used back then. Also watch out for one of the paintings.

The museum was marvellous because our tour guide, Lester, brought everything to life by demonstrating various contraptions and trying to persuade us to buy them! Really fun whilst also learning lots. At the end of the tour you can spend as much or as little time as you want exploring the oldest store. Very highly recommended!

This store was a great step back in time. Our guides, Annie and Isaac, made us laugh while staying in 1908!! A must see when visiting us in Saint Augustine!

My husband and I had a great time here. Lester was funny and a great tour guide. He has people in the tour interact with different old machines. Annie was the "warehouse clerk" and she was informative and funny. We loved the tour and all of the old machines, household items, medicines, and candy!
