The hype to this place isn't all its cracked up to be. The exhibits were fun, but short. The place is a little pricey. If it would have been cheaper, I would have given it 5 stars.

I have to admit that I went in to this not having read reviews, thinking "this is going to suck." No it didn't! It is pricey, about $22-$35/adult, but pretty good. The kids loved it. Just like any other museum, adults can read interesting things...More

Kids loved it. Priced reasonably for a family of 4. We loved the mirror maze. All types of wax figures. Great location. Not far from the Verizon theater and lone star park. We had a great time.

The kids will really love this place. Be patient though. It takes approximately one hour to get through all of the viewings.

Very cool exhibits and artifacts. We have been to Ripley's museums before and we really enjoyed this one. The gift shop was also nice. It had a wide variety of things to choose from. My only complaint was that it felt a little short.
