Why locals love it

Resembling a nature museum, this oddities shop specializes in natural artifacts such as fossils, meteorites, taxidermy and skeletons. Some items sold here are definitely not for the faint of heart. We really want to buy the billion-year-old space rock.

Why you should visit it

It's like visiting The Museum of Natural History but without paying admission. Whether you are science-minded or just enjoy creepy things, this store is a must-see with items ranging from cheap to pricey. Besides their more exotic items, they also carry jewelry, (insect-filled) lollipops, and souvenir t-shirts.

Special tip

You CANNOT buy human skeletons without a medical license...who knew?
