I have young children, so they were impressed with a lot of the things in the museum. Definitely buy the 3 attraction pass to make it worth it.

What a giant waste of money. I have not been here since I was my kids age and nothing has changed other than the price has gotten ridiculous. 50 bucks for what takes 30 minutes to walk through is a total suck off your wallet! Save your money and go have a nice meal or buy something neat to take... More

Not a bad attraction, doesn't seem to have been updated since my last visit many years ago. Kids will like it.

My husband and I visited Newport, Oregon last summer. The beaches were beautiful and the Oregon Coast Aquarium was very educational. However, the real fun is seeing Newport’s Historic Bayfront. Ripley’s Believe It or Not, The Wax Museum and The Undersea Gardens. They are a prime example of the smaller tourist attractions that are being lost in our bigger-is-better American... More

It's like going to a museum and seeing pictures of FINE ART, but none of the real stuff. It's okay but not worth paying an admission fee.

A real waste of time and money, They really could have put more effort into making it interesting. I really don't have anything more to say even tho I'm told I need to write more.

Its small. But if your a fan its worth a look. Its best to get the triple pass to Ripley's wax works and the underseas. It took us 30. Mins to go through

A very fun event for the whole family! Enjoyed all the things to look at, also loved that they allow cameras inside for a cool way to capture memories!

Two words: total disappointment, For what they charge for entry, I expected a lot more amusement then the 10 mins it took to stroll thru the poorly lit, cheaply executed exhibits. Save your money!

A fun little place for the whole family. Sadly they have to fit so much in a little space. If your looking for a low cost place for the family this is probably not the place though. For a 45 min walk through it was not worth the cost really.
