We paid $15 to enter into a teeny building with only a few rooms to view. Waste of money. Taking a photo outside with your kids is recommended though.

Not much to see or do for adults. Very small amount of display for a museum. KIDS would love the making of their own film. Costumes to put on and a director on site to help.

Ought to be called The Goonies museum. Very little info on other movies, unless you're a big fan and want to experiment with the green screen "make your own" video clips, it's not worth the money. Very cramped facility.

Probably the most disappointing museum I've ever been. You won't find anything inside, I'm not sure why they call it museum in first place. TOURIST TRAP.

They have a lot of film memorabilia from the famous movie "The Goonies". I'm pretty sure you already know the movie if you made it all the way to Astoria, The Goonies is sort of the citys pride and joy, it's a very memorable movie from the 80s and if you haven't seen it yet - rent it - see... More

But.... This place is pretty cool. You get to shoot your own movies scenes. That alone is worth the cost of admission. Neat

Very nice museum in a former jail; the jail used in the film Goonies. The museum has lots of hands on exhibits, but is very limited in the space it has. Very knowledgeable staff and helpful. If you "make a movie" make sure to email it to yourself. It's a great souvenir that you don't have to carry around. Takes... More

....and we had a free pass to get in! It was sorta a dopey museum. If you had kids, it would probably be fun to make a movie that you emailed to yourself. Otherwise, not sure that it's worth any amount of money.

My 22 year old son wanted to visit and we got the family price (very low) to take a quick tour and make 5 short movies. It was a fun!

I uuess if you have seen Goonies or Kindergarten Kop you might find this interesting. We had a free pass to get in so it was OK but I don't think I would have paid to get in. You can make your own 1 minute film using props they provide, so kids will love this part.
