Always a good indoor adventure for the kids

A very good adventure for inside entertainment. Needed an attraction out of the sun for the day and this was the perfect getaway.

This is the only boat-shaped building we saw. It’s cheaper than the upside down building across the street. I don’t want to give away spoilers, but there are plenty of interesting, unusual, unique, and strange exhibits to see here. Many things are from other countries. Art made of different objects is a big part of it. Replicas of different stuff... More

The moving theater....PRICELESS. We've seen the same movie a dozen times and we always leave there smiling. The newly renovated and additions to the museum was absolutely amazing. Only a slight complaint about a two-way mirror there where people on the opposite side bang on the glass, they shouldn't be allowed to to that. Other than that, keep up the... More

During spring break in PCB, two of my friends and I went to Ripley's one afternoon. I had previously been to a Ripley's location in Myrtle Beach, but the other two had never been. We each bought the package that included three of the four exhibits for $25 a person. The Odditorium was very interesting. There were a lot of... More

Thank you for visiting our attractions and I am glad that you were able to stop by our attractions during your Spring Break trip.

Believe it or not it was a little pricey for what you got. Not really a place to take young kids. Kind of spooky stuff... Went to the interactive theatre and it was fun but short.

We finally visited Ripley's. Went only to Odditorium. There was more, however, for kids there is lazer tag, mirror maze & 3-D movie. Seemed like a lot to do on a rainy day.
