  • Yeah, it's a tourist draw; but my wife and I had so much fun in there! There's a souvenir for just about every taste. And they do have eclectic antique pieces in there to seriously muse over. The Ripley"s Alligator Man is a macabre touch, but it does make you want to look. I liked the arcade games that pre-dated electronic games. Very innovative.
  • Good old fashioned tourist trap. Don't miss it. Although whatever you do, DON'T put a dollar in the piano thing!! It's so rickety and out of tune, it took several minutes for me to figure out what song it was playing. On second thought, maybe that's why you should! 😂 Fun times.
  • A must do for all ages.This place is iconic. Once of the only places to buy shells. Marshes has lots of old coin operated novelties like a player piano, fortune teller and strength testers. And don't forget Jake the Alligator Man and a 2 headed calf!
  • What a fun place! Better than any Cracker Barrel as far as fun, strange, and antique things to look at! Love the old machines you can play... bring nickles and dimes! I got a souvenir coin for 50 cents in a cast iron slot machine. Plenty of touristy items, along with a great collection of shells for sale. Worth the time to wander through.
  • A fun store/museum if you are in town you should take the time to check it out. Enjoyed seeing the antiques and bought nice printed t-shirts for the family. It was like three quarters store and a quarter museum but still fun.
