We were intrigued by it’s name. You can see from the other reviews that once you pay your $12/pp you go into the back room where you wind through a hallway of oddities & wait for your side show. Dan was the ‘freak’ (their word,...More

All the kinds of oddities in a small museum that you would expect in a traveling side-show. There is not a lot to see but it is interesting. Their show piece is the Ice Man, a character frozen in a block of ice. You don't...More

It’s very tiny, and overpriced for what it’s worth. But it was a interesting experience. Our side show guy was hilarious but it was super cheesy.

This is located in 6th street, which is the only reason we went. We were walking by after dinner and it was open pretty late. The price wasn't horrible and the staff were nice enough. We made our way through the exhibit pieces which reminded...More
