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

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.

This is a really small place, not much to see. The main attraction isn’t that great. You’ll witness a mini freak show, which was more cringe-worthy than interesting. I would save the $25 and go get a couple drinks on a rooftop bar instead.

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