Hard to describe this place! There is all kinds of cool artifacts to look at - everything from a very large collection of taxidermied critters as well as all the tourist gewgaws to buy- just a goofy fun place to stroll around- be sure to bring some nickels, dimes, and quarters for the vintage music machines and the peep shows!
What a place! You have to go in and browse to believe what we treasure and exhibit in America! We spent 15 minutes but am sure you could spend a little longer looking at the oddities and items for sale. Must do if you are in Long Beach but maybe only once!
This is one of the greatest "museums" and shops - ever ! Part natural history, bizarre, funny & insane. Plus, all kinds of cool touristy things to buy. Great way to spend a couple hours AND, it's free !!!
They have candy, live hermit crabs, kids toys, really cool t-shirts, pjs, jackets,. ...a little of everything. Plus a 2 headed calf, bear and a bunch of very old taxidermy items. Rocks, shoes, gag gifts.. lots of history around the shop including the old coin operated machines that tell your fortune, your love life... The employees were very nice and... 更多
But plan a pocketful of nickels, dimes and quarters to enjoy the old style music boxes and the like, as well as determining if Jake the Alligator Man is real or not. NOTE some photos and paintings are not appropriate, that is my biggest complaint and parents should be aware.
This place has been there for many years. Maybe I'm just getting old, but it seems a lot more commercial than it used to be. Good for souvenir shopping, and kids still seem to like to hunt for treasures.
