If it's weird, it's in here. This is a nifty shop to browse in. All sorts of strange things and many souvenirs. We have to go see Jake the Alligator Man everyone we are in Long Beach

Great place to visit. They have something for everyone. Prices are decent. They have a two headed calf and Jake the alligator man.

Nothing to write home about. All sorts of junk aimed at tourists. Not quality goods. Need something to do? Go.

I came to Marsh's as a 6-12 year old every year when we vacationed in Long Beach. Not quite the same allure as when you are 10 (now 64) but still a fun diversionary activity.

Wonderful stuffed collections of birds, animals etc. Your standard fare of tourist stuff for sale, but the old and antique stuff is great. Making this a must see.

Yes the museum is ADA, but it does become over crowded at times.(May-September). Late fall early winter are the best times to visit if you want to avoid the crowds.
