This was given free to us to pacify me as we waited for hundreds of school children toured the jail. Had I paid for the tour it would have been more disappointing. Cheesy narrative, a lack of interesting facts, small. The antiques were ok but nothing we have not seen before. It was clean and well kept.

The guide puts you back to about 1905 or so demonstrating (and trying to sell you) the latest and greatest household items of that time. What a blast!

We really enjoyed going through the old store next to the old jail. The cost of about 10 dollars is about what other places charge for admission. You have the Lightner museum that has stylized old furniture,glass wear, and music boxes. The Pirate museum with its history and relics. But, the old store is as what you would imagine, the walmart of its day. Old washing machines, old bicycles, and kitchen utensils. It takes you back and allows you to see how things have progressed to today. I would tell friends to go here and get a good laugh at some of the prices paid for lifes modern conviences in the late 1800's. Probably not the sort of place young children would appreciate and enjoy. But, well worth the visit in my opinion. Please note that there is an old store, and an oldest strore museum. This one is located on trolley stop 1, or next to the old jail.

One of our favorite things we did in saint augestine. Really takes you back to the era. It doesn't take a long time to do this so it's easy to fit into your schedule. Loved the girl host.. She was so funny! She wants you o interact with her. Remember that!
