Venice Beach Freakshow

This is a little cheesy in a good way. Only a $5 admission. This is a true freak show, folks. A little bizarre to be seeing something like this in this day and age but it was definitely an experience.

You can staple a dollar to the hobo from Scotland that performs, and take a picture with their "wolf man" for a tip. There 5 legged dog is alive and actually quite cute. Great way to kill some time, go with rowdy people and you'll have a blast.

This place was amazing. I have never seen so many weird animals in my life. If you are in California, don't miss it! I also saw a man swallow four swords at once! My kids enjoyed the two-headed turtle and the two-faced cat. It only cost three dollars to go in.

Venice Beach Freak Show

This is an awesome little place on the boardwalk. For 3 bucks you can go into this "nook of curiosity" and look at what seems to be hundreds of odd little things, like two headed animals(of all types), taxidermied stuff, shrunken heads. It's just too cool!

When I was there they even had live performers out front!

Venice Beach Freakshow

Located on the Venice Beach boardwalk in Venice, Ca. This is the STRANGEST ATTRACTION in Venice! The Freakshow has the largest collection of two headed animals in the world....2 two headed cows, a two headed chicken, a two headed raccoon, 2 two headed turtles, etc. They even have a BLACK MAMBA...the World's Fastest and Deadliest snake.....luckily it is taxidermied!

Don't miss the 3 Shrunken Heads and the Sri Lanka Sea Monster! You've got to see the CHUPACABRA! Over 60 Freaks, Strange Creatures, Oddities and attractions under one roof! INCREDIBLE!
