The World's Largest Squirting Clam was right next to the World's Largest Frying Pan in Long Beach, Washington. The World's Largest Frying Pan was built in 1941 for the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce. It was used at the annual Clam Festival. The big pan has travelled extensively in the Northwest to advertise the Long Beach Peninsula vacation area. It measures 14 feet 6 inches from end of the handle tall and 9 feet 6 inches across pan portion.

Marsh's Free Museum was right across the street from the big frying pan. It is a "free museum" in the successful tradition of tourist stops that mix the free part with plenty of purchasing opportunities. Marsh's Free Museum is a large souvenir and gift shop, jammed-to-the-rafters with displays of priceless oddities, antiques and sideshow remnants.
