Shell clowns. Souvenir City and Shark Museum

The live shark got too big for its tank, so she is gone, but if you like super cheesy beach souvenirs, go now. Kitsch capital of Navarre!

This place is a BLAST! Lots of photo ops! There is a ton of great stuff to gawk at, and live sharks inside to see. Souvenirs galore! This is just plain old fashioned fun! Don't pass this one up! A "GOTTA DO"!

To get to the Shark Museum, you walk through a door that is disguised as a toothy, open shark mouth. Weeds out those who aren't already thrilled with sharks.

In the shark mouth. Souvenir City and Shark Museum

I've been obsessed with going through the Souvenir City giant shark mouth for months. And finally - FINALLY - it became reality!

I loved this place. Sure, it's a bit cheesy, but aren't most of our favorite roadside attractions? I'm grateful for the free museum -- the framed articles alone were fascinating. And I was able to view my very first Jackalope. I'm so thankful to the museum for that experience.

Souvenir City and Shark Museum

The shark's mouth welcomes you to Souvenir City. The museum is interesting and there was a live shark in a tank when I was there. After entering the through the sharks mouth into the shop, the free museum portion will be on your left and it takes up a relatively small area.

The museum is worth a look, but the rest of Souvenirs City souvenirs leave much to be desired. They do have a large assortment of shells, but most of the other paraphernalia and "souvenirs" are very dated, as if it was made in the 1970's and 1980's. Some even show evidence of a patina suggesting that those dates could be fact. The shirts are something that I would expect to see on the racks at Goodwill, and most people would not wear unless you live on a fishing pier, or perhaps under a bridge. I'm not saying this to be rude or mean, but while the clerk was extremely pleasant and kind, the store is extremely behind the times with its wares and souvenirs. The local chain beach stores like WINGS, WAVES, and the like stores are more modern with their wares. I was able to pick up some extremely dated post cards, some complete with obvious spelling errors, rather inexpensively, which admittedly is something I like, however, evidence of their age was apparent.

T-shirts and souvenirs from the 1970s and '80s? Extremely dated postcards? Sounds great!
