It was not what I expected, but we would recommend it to others. There was a 20-30 minute video followed by entrance into seeing the ice sculptures. We were also able to see the artist do a small ice sculpture. It was very authentic. Glad...More

This was very cool for all ages. It is cold in there but they provide you with jackets. I would have given it a 5 if not for the 15 dollar Apple Tini drink that tasted terrible and the portion was poor.

We enjoyed the short visit to the ice museum. The couple who carved the entire place are world champion ice carvers and did a great job with the place. One may argue that it is a little pricey to pay $15 to get in and...More

Overpriced and lame unless you like paying 30 bucks to look at ice. Too many tourists taking photos just go outside in the winter if you love ice so much

Definitely a bathing suit for the hot springs, but a coat for the museum. It is cold in the ice museum. As I recall, they do have heavy jackets that you can wear. We went in February so had warm coats and gloves... More
