The Emporium

Years ago, downtown Orlando was the place to go to shop for Central Floridians. Now, once again, you can find one-of-a-kind items in the heart of the City Beautiful, in an eclectic shop tucked away within the History Center.

Located in first-floor Atrium, our Emporium gift shop is always free and accessible to the public. Specializing in nostalgic gifts that reflect the cultural history of Central Florida, the store offers rare vintage photographs, quirky Florida souvenirs, delicious treats, classic toys, books, and more.

For more information, please call 407-836-8595 or email Pamela Schwartz at Pamela.Schwartz@ocfl.net.
