  • You've driven all this way to see remote Chokoloskee. So why not go to the end of the island and see this fascinating old general store-turned-museum for a trip back in time. It's been featured in pro...  more »
  • As in the past. Very nice collection of objects from the past of the detergent boxes, to the famous Coke bottles! Everything is there! Memories memories! Nice place on the water before a boat trip or after!

  • Interesting display of the old pioneer days living and life here on the island. There a small foot path through the mangroves next to the stilt house that may be interesting to journey through while you're here.
  • This ancient hardware store is definitely worth the five dollar admission fee, because of its history. Unfortunately the interior is not well organized or cleaned, and basically there is a very interesting but vastly excessive collection of products from the last century. Perhaps the best part of the hardware store is to sit in the chairs of the back of the store with the doors open and experience the lovely cool breeze that flows through the store. The young woman who was "manning" the store was more interested in talking to her boyfriend on her cell phone than in providing any information or assistance to the paying clientele. This "hardware Museum" would benefit from better lighting, more selective culling, and serious dusting. It would also benefit from having a person running the store who would be prepared to provide some information and some assistance.
  • Cool history but it's a store... And now we'll kept. If you are a history buff pay the $5 and go in the hot old building. If not don't bother
  • A must see for any history lover! Wife and I spent at least a couple hours here. Old Florida like you've never seen nor ever will elsewhere.
  • Is was closed but I found it interesting spot.
