Historic Pensacola's Museum of Commerce
|Historic Pensacola's Museum of Commerce|
The Museum of Commerce is a reconstruction of a Pensacola, Florida streetscene using businesses that operated in Pensacola between 1880 and 1910. It is part of the Historic Pensacola Village in the Pensacola Historic District.
The Museum consists of twenty properties, some are interpretive history sites. They include a toy store, a leather store, a hardware store, a music store, a print shop, a gas station, and a tram. The print shop contains one of the most complete collections of antique printing presses and type in the Southeast. The trolley has reversible seats, as there was no way for the train to turn around; the conductor took his wheel to the other end, and simply went the other direction.
There is also a classroom that resembles a train station from the outside. If there is an employee of Historic Pensacola present, supervised groups may be let into stores, upon that employee's discretion.
