Fun place to visit. Lots of cool merchandise. Even some entertainment from some of it! I even found some glass bouys there, which I hadn't been able to find anywhere else (for a reasonable price.)

We spent way more time than I thought we would at Marsh's, playing the vintage game machines and looking at everything. The cashier was very friendly each time we walked up to ask him to make change. My kids loved playing the machines, especially the crane "claw" machine - they got lucky and won several small trinkets. They even gave... More

There isn't alot of museum type of stuff to see here but it is a fun shopping stop. Lots of tourist type gifts and shopping. I bought some delish salt water taffy, tasted very fresh and was super affordable. My hubby got a nice Long Beach shirt that he liked and again reasonable price. Fun place to spend 30 minutes...

Had fun looking at all the oddities here. Jake the alligator man was cool. Loved to see all the old working game machines. Pretty much something here for everyone.

Be sure to check out Jake the Alligator Man, and bring lots of dimes and nickels for the vintage game machines! You won't believe this place-it's so weird and Lynchian. A must-see!

Quick, lets get out of the rain! Wondered in to Marsh's Free Museum and was blown away by the amount of cool curios and the old arcade machines of the past. Absolutely something for every one. We could have easily spent an extra hour there but we left when the rain stopped. Definitely worth the visit.

Marsh's Free Museum has an entire gallery of yesteryear articles ranging from nickle peep shows, to garden equipment from the 1800's even down to Japanese glass fishing net floats. There is some awesome displays of taxidermy on display as well cultivating an array of critters. Jake the Alligator Man welcomes visitors to just imagine the unimaginable while you are there...

Bring your quarters and dimes. Lots of cool old machines to try out. See a very fake Jake the Alligator boy. Still cool though.
