  • The shop was pretty typical for a souvenir shop but the smell was awful. They sold ice cream but I couldn’t even think about it with the horrible smell. The place really needs a deep cleaning. Avoid i...  more »

  • We thought it was a museum but actually it is a funny store/museum. Lots of quirky things to see and view. And lots of things to buy too. Worth a trip.  more »

  • I love this place. It's super weird. Don't miss out on the world's largest gooey duck clam. It's hidden. If nothing else, go for the pressed penny machines. They have three.
  • This place is flat out amazing!! If your looking for something odd and out of the ordinary this is the place. Almost everything there you can't find anywhere else it's. Got stuff from mummies to spatulas and everything in between. Including sculptures on rice grains and the world's smallest hand writing.
  • A funky souvenir shop and museum of sorts that is worth a stop. Museum articles include mummies and shrunken heads (replicas?) and a lot more esoteric stuff. No entry charge. Fun for adults and kids
  • Not your average souvenir shop. Some really unique and interesting stuff here. I enjoyed wandering around for quite a while.
  • A glorified gift shop with some curiosities inside. I question how much of their curiosities are real vs. gaffs (things made to look like the real thing). It was ok and probably worth the stop for the kids. I would not get too caught up in it though.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
