My grandkids took me here and. I was so surprised by how much I liked it. So much to see and do and such a wealth of trivial info! It was definitely worth the price of admission. The kids are 9, 12, and 17 and they all enjoy going there. They are pros too, having visited several others in the... More

Fun time with the family. I think it was a little overpriced for the attractions that were there. But we had a fun especially the last attraction.

Museum was really interesting and would be a great place on a rainy day, but the price to get in were ridiculous!!! It's a museum of interesting tidbits, not the keeper of the Ten Commandments. Five people cost $75..... just sayin'

I have been to several of these museums and this one was lackluster. There are not a lot of actual artifacts but rather pictures of artifacts. A little disappointed.

Neat, who would have thought kind of stuff. There is a great deal of reading for those with kids who don't really like to read or have the patience for someone else reading.

Nothing to write home to momma about. It was interesting to see (some) of the things there. All in all it reminded me of a boring class trip to the museum. **yawn** NEXT!

Me, my boyfriend, our 3 year old son and 2 of our friends decided to check this out while on vacation. We did the combo deal for Ripleys believe it or not and the mirror maze. I highly recommend getting the package deal! We had a blast and got to see some really neat stuff!!! Very glad we decided to... More

I traveled with my 4 year old and 11 year old and we stayed on the boardwalk at Harrison Hall, which was great! We walked to Ripley's and the kids loved it and it was not too overwhelming for me. I just bought the ticket cards and let them do whatever they wanted.

We came upon this while strolling down the boardwalk 1 day. It was well worth the money to get inside. If you like oddities this is the place to go. Lots of strange and cool things inside. They also next door operate a mirror maze which is very neat.

My 7 year old expressed interest in going here since he was too scared to go in the year before. We all had a great time here and learned a lot. Everyone seems to end up taking something different away from the museum. I really loved the art area of the museum and what all types of things people have... More
