Lots of curios representing the Old Florida. History buffs will love this oldest store museum. One pays an entrance fee to browse inside the store and let one's imagination fly at the sight of the myriad of artifacts reminding us of Florida's historical past.

An assortment of items sold at general stores in the later eighteen hundreds into the early nineteen hundreds. Some are familiar and stillout there, while other are just plain weird by today's standards

Interesting history provided from tour guide. Rather warm inside as door closed when group enters the store. No sitting during store tour and probably takes 35-45 min. Was interesting to see types of products people would expect to see in a store way back then.

This was a neat little tour, it was included in our package. You get a quick history lesson of what things cost a couple hundred years ago... A "quiet" hand crank milk shake maker, that has to be bolted to the floor, for under $10...to a Goat powered Washing machine...nice little tour

The setting of this museum was a general store at or around 1908, as St Augustine was growing. A great mix of ordinary and unique items of every day life around home, hotel and farm. I felt this was an excellent and informative museum. An excellent change from beach and the old city that does not take a lot of... More

We enjoyed a tour of the old store by several guides who posed as characters working in the store during the store's hey-day. They were informative and lively. Lots of good antiques to view in the store.
