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.

Interesting display, but not very high on my list of "must-see"! Others seemed to enjoy it more than I.

The actors were so funny yet original to the time. The merchandise. In the store was interesting and the prices. Just think back to your great grandparents used to live and depend on. Fun as well as educational.

We chose to do the Oldest Store Museum to pass a little time before we left town. It's set up like the Old Jail Museum in that the tour guides are in period dress and character and interact as if you're a customer back in the day. Our store keeper guide was Lester who did a great job of showing... More

We got the free access as part of the trolley tour and it was interesting stepping back in time to see how things were many years ago. The attendants and tour guide are the ones that make the visit interesting. If you are trying to see the way people lived and worked during the time of Henry Flagler this gives... More

The guide conducts the tour in character and guides you through an old time genaral store. It's very interesting and full of interesting historical facts. Kid friendly and inexpensive.
