This really a tchotchke shop (knickknack/little cheap items) and not a museum but if you want a souvenir and don't want to spend a lot of cash then this is the place to go! There are quite a few things to see "oddities". It is...More

This is a good museum. Free, with interesting things stuffed in every corner of this property ! Antiques, new items, beachy items, something for everyone. One can't forget to visit the 'alligator man-Jake' A conversation maker for the little ones especially !

This is more of a tourist destination. It’s got some interesting things to see. It’s more of a gift shop with some curiosity and historical type of items thrown in. Everyone should stop at least once.

It's a MEGA souvenir store. You would be able to find so much stuff there that it would take you hours to check out the things they have in there. I spend about $50 in there but some would spend lots but there are many...More

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.
