We thought this would be a fun thing to see in Austin to kill some time. We waited in a cramped, hot hallway with a ton of people for about 10 minutes. Then we were all pushed into a crowded room to see a fake...More

If you're in Austin, don't miss it. Oddities galore. Don't miss the frozen prehistoric man. Truly weird.

It was fun...mainly the side show. A little overpriced for the short tour and small space, but there were some cool things to see. If they’d cut admission in half it would be worth it.

I don’t regret going but I would not recommend it to anyone else exploring Austin. Saw the quirky title and scrolled through the pictures on trip advisor, I was fairly excited to check it out. I think it was $12 per adult which seemed reasonable...More

This was a crazy fun place to visit. The staff was hilarious especially Dan who performs so pretty graphic amazing feats. If you have a weak stomach you better hold onto your gut. The frozen ICEMAN was cool to see. There was a lot of...More

The people at the front counter of the museum were very nice. You walk into a cool gift shop with some gimmicky weird stuff. I wish we would have kept it at that. In order to get into the actual exhibit you have to pay...More

Average..I’d give 2.5 if I could on the app.. Some cool items and wax works, but expensive for what it is.. As per a previous review, it was not obvious that the iceman video was kind of a prerequisite for the ‘main attraction‘..I think we...More

It was a last minute decision to stop here, killing time before the airport. It was fun, the gift shop was cool, friendly staff and weird sideshow!

I'm going to say the same thing everyone else is: the tour is overpriced. You pay $24 for a crowded hallway two with two open rooms. Honestly, the best part was the live tour givne by the guide, but then you find out you need...More

The overall collection of weird stuff was great and the detail went into the items were fantastic. The downside is the pathway ways are small and it’s dark. With a lot of traffic, it made it difficult to pass as the people from the last...More
