It's a quirky, intelligent, off-the-beaten path museum. Jason, aka, Dr. Laser, is entertaining and smart as hell. We learned, laughed and heard about his walk-on part son television as well. But it's the science that is fascinating and he is the real deal. The museum...More

This definitely was “out of the box” tour. Dr. Laser is entertaining and very knowledgeable. It was interesting and provided us hours of laughter well after the show.

I came in with a large tour group and had the best time. The holograms were really interesting, and there were so many different types to see. Every time I thought I had seen the coolest thing, Dr. Laser pulled out something even cooler. His...More

I will admit I was skeptical before going. I envisioned those silver holograms on trading cards or "authentic" clothing tags, how interesting could that be? What Doc Laser showed on the tour blew us away! It is part exploration into the working studio of an...More

If you are fascinated by holograms, you may find that about 30 minutes here is sufficient. We went with a large tour, and spent 2.5 hours here, gazing at dusty holographic pieces, some more interesting than others. And of course, being regaled by "Dr. Laser"...More
