  • You'll find Smallwood's General Store at the "end" of the road the west side of the state. Please don't be mislead, it is a museum which is housed within the original general store. Lots of old items ...  more »
  • This is a good extra stop if you are in Everglades City to ride the air boats or go to the national park. The admission is cheap and it is worth it to see the old time collection of early Florida hist...  more »
  • This is not "on your way" to someplace...this is a destination you seek out! But it was fun. We saw this store on some TV show and wanted to make it a place to visit. We enjoyed the ride across Tamiam...  more »

  • Very cool preservation of old Florida, cracker-style. Life in the islands area of southwest Florida was always tough and the Smallwood Store was area place of community and provision. It is now a museum of that way of life, not gone but going. Not to be missed.
  • “Cool little place” I read about this so I felt I had to go out of my way a bit to see it. Was it worth it? I don't know. $5 entry fee, walk around and see all this old time, musty stuff. I grew up in the 60's in a lakes region so it was kind of a cool nostalgic place to see.
  • Even at 5 bucks seems overpriced. Our visit wasn't helped by the girl at admissions who talked loudly on the phone the whole time during our visit.
  • Smallwood Store is labelled as a museum. It is not an operating store. Insofar as its qualification as a museum, it is not currated by a knowledgeable historian and offers little to no educational value. It is more a curio shop with a collection of odds and ends that represents a bygone era of everglade life. Whether it is worth the drive from the main road is questionable. If you are going to the Everglade Park for other adventures it might be worth a visit.
  • A historic location now operated as a tourist attraction with a $5.00 admission charge.
