  • Visit Waterfront and not to visit this store is as if you had not gone! Is a visit required a time these there. The thing more curious and jewelry is wonderful.

  • I know this place isn't what it used to be. But is is still worth a walk through to see the different things inside. I have at times thought of this as a free and tacky carnival museum. Don't have hig...  read more »
  • In Seattle, my friends and I were looking at the waterfront. I wanted a water bottle and went into Ye Olde Curiosity Shop to get one. While in the store, I saw displays of taxidermied animals in cases...  read more »
  • I've always loved going to the Ye Older Curiousity Shop. Love the new layout. Gives Sylvester and Sylvia (the mummies) a larger display case complete with detailed descriptions. They also added three penny pressers, each with three designs. I was disappointed when the design was way off, but when I asked for a cash refund the cashier couldn't be nicer. Also love the beautiful totem poles.
  • Very fun, quirky place. Full of oddities amd old timey antiques along with the usual gift shop fare. A Seattle waterfront institution.
  • Again, this is one of the "Must See and Do" tourist spots in Seattle. Located on the waterfront, the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop features some of the weirdest stuff in Seattle and the perfect place to purchase all of those tourist souvenirs you know you need to take home. Every local kid has fond memories of their childhood visits to the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop and nobody should pass up the opportunity to say they've "been there, done that!" And, for most of it, we can't help ourselves... we just keep coming back (using visiting friends and family as our excuse). Don't miss this place just because a local didn't bring you here!
  • This is one of the strangest and creepiest gift shops I've ever seen, with a handful of old style candies to satisfy those with less morbid curiosity. An assortment of shiny things, skeletons, and a mummy also line the walls of this little waterfront shop, and it is worth 5 of 10 minutes of your wandering time if you find yourself in the area.
  • Been going to this store since I was a little kid. Place is filled with weird and creepy stuff but also really nifty things. Seattle truly has an iconic gift shop with this place that no other city has in my opinion.
