The people at the front counter of the museum were very nice. You walk into a cool gift shop with some gimmicky weird stuff. I wish we would have kept it at that. In order to get into the actual exhibit you have to pay...More

It was a last minute decision to stop here, killing time before the airport. It was fun, the gift shop was cool, friendly staff and weird sideshow!

I'm going to say the same thing everyone else is: the tour is overpriced. You pay $24 for a crowded hallway two with two open rooms. Honestly, the best part was the live tour givne by the guide, but then you find out you need...More

The overall collection of weird stuff was great and the detail went into the items were fantastic. The downside is the pathway ways are small and it’s dark. With a lot of traffic, it made it difficult to pass as the people from the last...More

Granted that it is located on Austin's 6th street, but the price for admittance is a bit much ($12). they do have some pretty cool stuff like a wax museum and a xenomorph at the end of the tour, but no enough to justify such...More

Great little museum of curiosities. The wax museum upstairs is especially good--wax works of classic movie monsters including a huge King Kong. A little overpriced at $12 plus the sideshow at the back asking for a tip--suggesting $15--seems a bit high.

This "museum" is quite overpriced and not all that interesting. The best part was the side-show entertainer who can run electricity through his body. Once was absolutely enough for this place.

A quirky and eccentric museum that would be great if it weren't for the price. $12 and it takes about 10 minutes to walk around. We did the guided tour which felt like there wasn't really enough time to read all the information. $5 Would...More

This Museum is cramped. It has a strange collection of words stuff. It's worth the visit if you've run out of other things to do while in Austin. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic.

$7 each for kids under 8. The site says senior discounts are available, but I am unsure of how substantial it is.
