  • First time here, and loved it! The place reminded me of the old curiosity shops from my childhood. Neat old stuff to look at, and a little gift store to buy things. The staff are really friendly, and ...  more »

  • Tons of interesting pieces of history and oddities. Kids (and me) love this stuff. I spent an hour in the museum just gawking at the shrunken head, taxidermy and old fashioned machines. This place is really quite amazing and fun. Plus kids can pick up inexpensive little trinkets to remember thier vacation. Make no mistake, this is a tourist trap but it is one that has value and doesn't waste your time even if you don't buy anything. Although with so much fun stuff to see and do here, you probably will buy something...
  • This place is timeless! I have been enjoying these crazy phenomenal exhibits since childhood! 2 headed calf, Jake the alligator man, and an entire orchestra in one compact unit playing wonderful tunes!
  • This place is a FREAK show, with all sorts of taxidermy of unusual and fictitious animals. There is a fine gallery on the walls of old tools, appliances, skeletons and other matters. If you have teenage boys, you might keep an eye on them as there are 10c peep shows they can watch and other photos of bare ladies around.
  • Great to walk around a take a look. They have things I've never seen. Almost everything is for sale. Take spare change in with you, they have some older coin operated machines you can play with.
  • Fun store with a ton of quirky oddities. Be sure to say hi to the giant owl and Jake while you're there.
