  • This is our family-go-to place when we giving the peninsula. It is advertised as a museum antique store but one good stroll through the place will let you see why it is so much more. My 7 year old lov...  more »
  • This place is a hoot -- and bring some quarters for the orchestra player piano. Yes, it's a shop filled with tourist doodads, but it's got a lovely funky charm.  more »

  • An interesting place with lots to buy. It’s mostly a store but has some cool old carnival type of machines. We didn’t have any money but you should definitely bring coins like nickels so you can play with them. We got to hear a few of the old music making contraptions from other people playing them but there were other interesting things that I have never seen there. Definitely go to see Jake the Alligator Man!
  • Mostly a tourist trap with the typical wares. Not a bad place, just a big gift shop. Some of the antique music machines are cool to see. Jake the alligator man is pretty cool to see.
  • Quirky FREE, yes free, museum. Lots of antiques, old coin operated games, and stuff from the interesting to the bizarre. Jake the Lizardman is one of its attractions. A fun stop while on Long Beach.
  • Not so much of a museum as a novelty and suviner shop rolled into one. You do get to see the famous "alligator man" that is nestled away in the back, and many of the old coin operated machines actually work. If you are at all opposed to copious amounts of dust or not a fan of taxidermy I would steer clear. Otherwise if you habe the time it is worth it just to experience a little place of oddities on your trip
  • This is a fun stop for locals and tourists. I find new stuff every time I go there. The historical photos are very interesting.
