From our humble start in 1899 on 2nd Avenue and Pike Street to our current spot on Pier 54, Ye Olde Curiosity Shop has welcomed the world into our den of uniquity. Here, you can view artifacts and oddities from every arc of the globe. Many of these fascinating finds were once part of the goods for sale in the early days of the shop; they now comprise the core of the permanent collection in our family's free museum, inside the shop. Today, items for sale include a selection of standard tourist fare such as postcards, keychains, magnets and hats, along with more unusual items, like goat skin shrunken heads, Native American and First Nations hand-carved totem poles and masks, handcrafted jewelry, nostalgic sweets, and an impressive array of taxidermic bugs and animals.
If you are in Seattle, stop by and say hi! We are currently open 7 days a week, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
