This place is so full of many things! Some are interesting and some are just plain creepy but we always go back. There are tons of souvenirs to purchase also.

We can not go to Long Beach, WA. without going to Marsh's Free Museum. There are so many things to look at and to buy. My husband wouldn't think of skipping that place when we are in town. They were in flux this time but it was still fun to snoop around. We never miss it!

We never get tired of this place! My husband also like to roam around the store to see if there is anything new in it.

We stopped into Marsh's while camping near Long Beach. It was exactly as I remembered it 20 years ago. However, this trip, they were in the process of rearranging racks and so it was very cluttered and difficult to walk around. Our kids loved the oddities and of course, Jake. It was fun to look around and all the odd-ball... More

You simply cannot go to Long Beach and not tour Marsh's. And to all of you beautiful women, if you come in the early summer you can enter the contest to be Jake the Alligator Man's Bride for the upcoming year!

Best of its type west of Wall Drug. Fresh salt water taffy. Lots of kitschy ocean themed gifts, many made in China. But a great place to let the little ones satisfy their curiosity and choose a little gift.

You can buy touristy stuff, look at oddities and even play old nickel games. It's part antique shop, part museum, part tourist shop and part candy/toy store.

No visit to Long Beach WA would be complete without a trip to Marsh's. It is like a mini time machine. There are machines from the last century that tell your fortune or romantic inclinations. Notions and gifts galore. Don't forget to say hello to Jake the alligator man.

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.)
