I'm actually reporting on the Annex and the Original 2/10 of a mile down the road. Fantastic collection of collectibles. If you can't find it here, it may not exist. Some of the items are a little pricey but if you look you can find...More

Absolutely amazing! The history of the building and all the amazing artifacts make it worth the time spent visiting. We managed to walk through the place in 20 minutes or so.

Enjoy going to Mast when we're in the area. Lots of neat things you will not find many other places. Kids like to see all the unique stuff and going to the candy store at the annex.

We stopped at Mast General just to look around and see what they had. After perusing the food area, we stopped in the shoe section and my spouse tried on a pair of hiking boots. Rainey came over and helped us. She was phenomenal! She...More
