Haunted Austin Walking History Tour

147 reviews
For a not-so-typical take on Austin history, visitors can experience the ghastly tales of this historic city on this storyteller-led haunted walking tour. Get ready for a good scare as you head out for your nighttime adventure to uncover tales of ghosts, murderers, and the spooky stories in between. Stop at haunted attractions, including the Driskill Hotel, and hear about how Austin has developed over the decades.

My 9 year old and I went here expecting something interesting for all ages. He noticed that all of the other kids waiting to enter with us were half his height, so we asked if it was just for toddlers, and the employee said no, it's for kids through 12. I don't think she knows many 12 year olds. Because of COVID19, they allowed people to enter in small groups, and we had to spend 15 minutes at each exhibit. My son ready to move on within 5 minutes at each one. The exhibits are really geared toward toddlers and preschoolers, and many of the exhibits are identical to other museums we've seen in Seattle, Cincinnati, and Palo Alto, such as the ball that floats over a fan, and giant Lite Brite. After 3 exhibits, we left. It wasn't worth waiting around to see whether there would be more interesting exhibits upstairs, and we weren't allowed to go to the next one until the bell rang. If you have an elementary schooler or older, skip this one. If you have a toddler, it may be worth checking out.

Superb entertainment center with creative, educational, engaging activities for children between 3 to 10 years of age or so. My6 year old spent about ten hours at The Thinkery today. Not too many places can retain a child’s interest for that long.
