“Lots of fun, pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I’ll admit, I didn’t have high hopes going into the Cosmos Mystery House. It looked like a pure tourist trap to me, but my daughter really wanted to do it. I was pleasantly surprised. This place was not too expensive (kids under 12 are free). The tour was a little over half an hour and was pretty darn neat. I won’t spoil the tour but if you have a free hour I would say stop on by and check it out. I would say it was worth the money spent.

Go here, you will never experience anything like this anywhere else. Have been there several times and love it each time. Love to bring new people to the experience.

“Silly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This might be a good place to take little kids, but it is not very believable for an adult. And is quite expensive. Nice gift shop though, all kinds of crazy stuff in there.

“typical tourist attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

It was odd that we were the only two people on a off season and they made us wait for the tour instead of just geiing started. The place was interesting.
