The front room is just full of history. I absolutely loved seeing all the old medicine, the old counter, register and doors. The floors themselves can tell much more about how old the place is that anything. After that you walk into another room where they sell personal care items and like a giftshop. It's dreadfully hot and smells like old lady. There is one wall in that room with display cases with old pepsi/coke bottles and medicine, but that's where the fun ends. Nice to look and there's no fee, but it's really short, like maybe 15 minutes of just passing through.

Had a hard time finding this museum since it is not at 4 Artillery Lane, which is near all the shops on George St. This museum is beside the Old Jail. Enjoyed it but would have liked more time to browse & take in the MANY items around the room. If you like household antiques, this is for you. If you are from the country & attend old farm estate auctions, you may have already seen a lot of the items. Only $6 for this tour, 1/2 hr max. Last tour @4:30 pm

Recently toured The Oldest Store Museum Experience in St Augustine, and was rather amazed. The actors put you in 1908 (similar to The Old Jail nearby), and you are introduced to products and sales pitches from the time. There is so much to see inside this building! My only complaint would be that I'd like more time to see the things in the front of the store.
Obviously a great deal of time, effort, and money have been put into this attraction. I can't think of anyone who would not be entertained and educated by it.

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.
