Providing anything from small trinkets to Colonial and Victorian currency, the gift shop supplies memorable souvenirs for any tourist or history buff. If you loved your meal at the tavern, you can purchase an eighteenth century cookbook to recreate the delicious Southern cooking at home. Because Michie Tavern also offers tours, you can hear visitors bustling upstairs, creating an authentic 18th century experience. The gift shop also offers contemporary souvenirs that are great as presents to children and adults.

The General Store and Metal Smith Shop lie just a few yards away from Michie Tavern. All of these stores collectively provide locals and tourists with shopping experiences from various time periods. The General Store and Metal Smith Shop differ from the tavern, as they carry traditional Southern home décor and local food products. However, the General Store also displays Colonial and Civil War fashion in the Clothier Shop on the second floor, providing a joint museum experience and modern mom and pop-style store.

The General Store proudly provides items made in the U.S.A. and Virginia. With Virginia-made wines, brews, and hard ciders, the General Store allows visitors to sample a taste of Central Virginia’s finest alcoholic beverages. Created in 1882, the Metal Smith Shop sells both functional and decorative metal-ware. Stop by for colonial replicas and modern artist designs.

In the Spring of 2019, you will be able to enjoy your favorite beverage in the 1784 Pub here at Michie Tavern. We are making modifications to connect the oldest section of the Tavern to our existing dining room; renovations began January 2, 2019. Walls are being exposed that haven’t seen daylight in many years!
This expansion will not alter our normal dining operation. As our guests enjoy Virginia wine, brews or hard cider in the oldest section of Michie Tavern, a true 18th-century atmosphere will exist.  We will enhance the experience through education of not only our story but also the evolution of Virginia’s wine, beer and cider industry.
