This was an interesting tour. Very short. The guides were in period dress and talk. We had Tillie as our guide and she was very good. They explain all of the "new" products they have in the store . It is interesting to see what they considered cutting edge stuff at that time. It has two sections - the front and the warehouse where another guide tells you about some other items they have. Neat tour but a bit pricey for only a tour that is less than 30 minutes. The cost is $9.54.

We had a later tour. Only 7 of us on this one and 5 were my family. Don't know if guides were tired or what, but it seemed to lack some of the energy I have read about in other reviews. There were some really neat things to see and lots of things to see! We purchased as an add on to the jail tour so it was very reasonably priced. Short though. Maybe 40 minutes total.

Wonderful tour. Jeremiah was the best guide we had on any of our tours in St. Augustine. This store had an amazing collection

The old store museum is a new exhibit that has opened since we'd last been here. It is in front of the old jail and is a guided tour through some old connected buildings. There is a lot of old memorabilia that older folks will recognize and appreciate. We thought it was Okay but a little pricey for a 20 minutes walk thru. However if you are a new visitor it is something you will want to do.

This museum is set up like an old American store and was so interesting. The tour guides were so entertaining and made you laugh. It was excellent to see some of the old fashioned goods that people were buying in the past - coffee blender was my favourite. Worth a visit definitely, will only take 30 mins.
