When locals advise out-of-town guests about what to do, Marshs Free Museum inevitably is on the list.
Marshs Free Museum is the collection of Wellington Marsh Sr., who died in 1977, and his son Wellington Marsh Jr., who passed away in 1995.
For all the curiosities at Marshs Free Museum, 409 S. Pacific Avenue (State Route 103), in Long Beach, the boffo attraction is Jake the Alligator Man.
For all the two-headed cows and Siamese-twin lambs, the world-class shell collection and nickel peep shows the star remains Jake the Alligator Man.
Jakes birthday celebration is Aug. 5 & 6.
