The tour guides seemed a bit bored with the task. The store does house a number of interesting antiques. Good way to spend some time while waiting on the trolley.

After about very 10 mins, very boring. Was not worth the Cost & Time. Would of been more interesting just walking around and looking at the items.More

I was sorry to read that your tour with us did not meet your expectations. The Old Store is packed full of some of the “Latest and best time saving miracles from the 1900’s”. Our friendly clerks, butcher and snake oil salesman should have demonstrated...More

The "owner" of the store was cute and gave information about the history in a fun way. Toured the back of the store with all the latest invention for the turn of the century. If you are a history buff, you will love this stio.

I really wanted to see this place, and I think I convinced my friends to come just to get out of the heat. But it was adorable and convincing and the tour guide was excellent. Good for people from ~6 years on.

This tour was better than I expected. It was unique in that almost all of the items in the store are "new." Not used antiques. Well done and wish I could have spent more time.

With a fun tour guide, we enjoyed a great trip for a couple of hours through a typical general store of the 1900's. With shelves full of artifacts and products, it was like going into a movie set. In the back was a warehouse with...More

when we went we bought it as a seperate item. However, you can purchase tickets as a group when purchasing the trolley ticket. There is a lot of places to visit, and the choice is yours. Have a good time.
