It was fun but a bit boring for the kids.

It was interesting but somewhat boring for our grand kids. We love the look of the outside. There was so much to look at.

just ok, kids had fun but they finished the tour in 20 min so not worth the price. ANd then they spent way too much money in their store.

Staff was amazing. The young lady at the counter was awesome. She noticed my USAA card and asked if I was military and gave me a discount. ( I wish I could remember her name) she was joking around and explaining where everything was and what her recommendations were. We took them and had a blast.

Not cheap and not super expensive. Very interesting collection of oddities, different from the San Antonio location that we've been to before. Cool 7d theatre where you get to shoot things with the lasers. Cool mirror maze, buy the glasses! Play the laser maze too!

I'm sure this would have been worth the money but for that price, we didn't even think about it! We toured the gift shop instead. Also too expensive for us but still fun to look at. You can see some of the exhibits from there so you can get an idea of whether or not you want to spend your... More

Wife and I were looking for something to do, so gave it a shot. I really wouldn't make a special trip, maybe a rain day. If you read every word, maybe could spend a couple of hours. Really not many exhibits.

The mirror maze lasts 5 minutes at the most. Not worth the price. But the auditorium was pretty good, I would go back to it. The guy at the front was a little rude and acted like we were a bother.

My husband and I went here one afternoon while on a vacation in panama city beach, FL. We really did enjoy the odditorium! They had some really cool exhibits and the titanic one was great. We had gotten the laser maze which was ok, but not what we expected. The interactive movie was so much fun though! We loved that!... More
