This was an interesting place to say that least!!! It was fun to walk thru and see the oddities that it had there. There were a couple of exhibits that my 2 younger children were a bit afraid of, but it was a fun experience.

The best part is the water ball outside in the front entrance area! It moves and is a wonder all of itself. I was impressed.

The myrtle beach version seemed a bit shorter than others I have been to. My daughter really like the "giant next to the measurer" and the mirrors. Overall a fun time killer, just wish there would have been more to it.

We took our 9 year old son and 5 year old daughter and they both were very fascinated by all the displays and interactive things that you could do. I would say it took us 30-40 minutes to walk through and view everything. It is just one of those place if you have kids that they will enjoy.

The museum of oddities was very interesting. We enjoyed it very much. One suggestion is that team members (and parents) should be more involved in maintaining order in the museum. I am referring to the running and yelling children. When children are allowed to misbehave it makes it miserable for the others in the museum.

great experience, you see things that many may never see. However, once you've been there twice, is becomes old...as they say, been there done that. But You really need to go the first two times...

My wife and I got in for free, if we had paid full price, we probably would have been disappointed. It's a cool place, don't get me wrong, but insanely overpriced. If you want to get here, try to find a coupon or special deal, because regular price would be a tough pill to swallow.

Overpriced. Got tickets for this and mirror maze. At the mirror maze they give you glasses but not us they charge you extra if you bought a combo pass. What's the point then? $88 bucks for a so so museum and a very small mirror maze they give you food gloves so you don't smear up the mirrors way too... More
