I thoroughly enjoyed this. Isaac and George make it a lot if fun. Lots of interaction. A lot of antique pieces with what it would have cost back then. Crazy to think how far just 10cents would go. I would have liked it to be a little longer. They have plenty in there to talk about. Thats the only reason... More

Can you imagine a store owner being able to buy enough stock to be able to put one of everything in storage and never sell it? Everything you see is new but 100 odd years old. Incredible.

If this place didn't sell it, you didn't need it! You get to pick a free stick of "candy" from the jars on the counter too!

St Augustine was a delightful place to visit with many interesting pieces of history. The Oldest Store Museum was our favorite by far. It contains an amazing array of period pieces in excellent condition. The tour guides do an excellent job of maintaining their character role throughout the tour. Additional time is given to linger and explore. Highly recommend this... More

Wasn't too sure about this, but the Wife wanted to go. I really enjoyed it as the actor led guide was hilarious and made it that much more enjoyable.

Lots of vintage items to see and fun tour guides that kept you in the era while describing many of the museum items.

This was a nice stop. It wasn't quite as fantastic as some of the other local attractions, so if you're pressed for time and can only choose a few, skip this one. However, we were here for a few days so we had plenty of time. We liked how it included the prices of items during the time frame.

The storytellers of the store make you keenly aware of how far we have come in 100 years or so....the store and jail are set in 1906 and you get an appreciation for prices, challenges, and 'conveniences'.

I have been to several "Old General Stores" but this one out weighs them all. I have never seen such a collection from the past.. Tour guides very interesting.. Took you back in time.
