This Museum is cramped. It has a strange collection of words stuff. It's worth the visit if you've run out of other things to do while in Austin. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic.

This is a really small place, not much to see. The main attraction isn’t that great. You’ll witness a mini freak show, which was more cringe-worthy than interesting. I would save the $25 and go get a couple drinks on a rooftop bar instead.

This is a great little museum and gift shop to visit if you're into weird things but especially if you're someone who would make a detour to see a sideshow or watches old horror movies. There are a lot of random different objects in the...More

Anyone who truly wants to experience the weirdness that Austin has to offer should visit this museum. Some of the exhibits authenticity may be questionable but it is a really fun place to visit. Part of the fun is trying to figure out what is...More

The museum alone is pretty corny and hokey, but we knew that going in so our expectations were in the right place. I was shocked and annoyed at the cost to get vs. what you get. The hallways are cramped with no one to stop...More

Could have had more weird stuff to see but overall was interesting and the tour guide Sal was cool and interesting himself with a mind reading trick he did with the audience .

A number of "circus sideshow-type" attractions are included, from shrunken heads to deformed animals (not live). The highlight is the "Iceman," supposedly a cross between humans and apes in the evolutionary chain. In the same room as the "Iceman," a magician of sorts demonstrated supposed...More

$7 each for kids under 8. The site says senior discounts are available, but I am unsure of how substantial it is.
