“Rough On the Outside, Quaint on the Inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

I too had mixed feelings about visiting this attraction after passing by it with my sister. We passed it on the way to her house and caught the last tour of the day. The outside was aging and badly worn out but the staff and the inside was a nice surprise. We had fun despite the dreary outside. It needs someone to organizes it and clean it up and make a few repairs here and there. Ok for little kids but needs to be revamped for the older crowd. We went next door to see the Citrus Tower, but it was under renovations.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

After reading the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. The place is run down and disorganized. It is definitely not worth the admission price. This place could have potential if someone would take it over and make it into the cute little museum that it could be.

“Old Florida Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

When you're sick of sitting in traffic in Orlando and you're sick of manufactured fun, you should venture outside the theme parks and check out some quaint Florida attractions like this.

The miniature White House is INSANE, by the way. I come from a family of very famous dollhouse makers and I was blown away by the details in the model. And with real White House tours harder and harder to come by these days, it may be your only chance to get a peak inside.

The place has character. We got lots of personal attention when we were there on a cold, rainy day. The gift shop has some neat stuff in it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE old Florida gift shops. Such cool things in them. They even had some dollhouse miniatures, so if you're into that kind of stuff, it's a no-brainer.

It's a little out of the way--we're from Orlando and we had never heard of it--but coupled with a trip to the neighboring Citrus Tower, and you've got a nice afternoon. Clermont has hills and great views and some great local restaurants, so you can definitely get your money's worth from the gas you'll use getting there.

“Seen better days but still fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Like all the other reviews, this place badly needs a makeover. But our group still found it enjoyable. I'll also agree with the other reviews saying it is a bit pricey for what it is. But hey we were on vacation! The lady at the front was super nice. We spent about an hour or so looking at all the stuff. If you're into antiques and collectables you'll be in heaven. Don't make a special trip but if you're in the area stop in.

“'Side Show' Attraction”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Centerpiece is a model of the White House plus wax models of the presidents and video displays. Place looks like a disorganized wharehouse. Owners should be ashamed of themselves. Basically a typical Florida giftshop. Surprised that they don't sell florida tee shirts and alligator heads. The artifacts that they do have should be sold or given to someone who can display them in a more appropriate manner.
