    The oddball collection includes a Fiji mermaid, the Minnesota Iceman, and shrunken heads. Take the $4 tour and learn your future from the resident fortune teller.

    Reminded me of a smaller Ripley's Believe It or Not! Don't miss the show upstairs... It's electric!

    Pretty much lived up to it's name. Staff were super nice, too. Cool how they had different sections. Since we came early, we had VIP service from one of the last living oddities at the Side Show.

    Take your time going through the exhibits and be sure to ask the staff about the skeleton in the back. Great spots for fun pictures and don’t forget to get a ticket to see the Minnesota Iceman!

    Occasional performances on second floor, but worth a look for the awesome oddities on the first floor.

    Go check out the gift shop here and say hi to the great people who run the place (they're pretty rad). When you're done doing that, go through the museum and check out the side show. Great stuff!:)

    Its a small little shop, but its definitely worth the admission price. The staff enjoys working there and it shows. Definitely ask them about the exhibits. Also, the shop supports lizard rescue

    MUST go here. But first, grab a "pickle shot" next door from the jackalope. Definitely worth the small ticket price. Assortment of odd items and CRAZY sideshow at the end! Remember to tip!

    If you didn't get your daily fill of bizarre just walking down the rest of this street, swing by.

    Is a collection of the weird and disturbing and includes such traditional freak show fair as a Fiji mermaid and a frog with teeth, shrunken heads, a preserved two headed cow, and a fortune teller.

    Ask the owner or one of the staff to tell you some of the back story of the stuff there - it more then doubles the value of the $4 ticket!
