I’m really into horror movies and all things bizarre. I thought some of the things here were interesting and the price was cheap enough. I shouldn’t have went in with a 3-year-old as she was very frightened here. What rushed me out quickly though was...More

It’s only $3 if you have 10 minutes to waste but it’s really not that interesting. Very small. Kids might enjoy it. You can play Laser Tag for an additional $3. You can interact with floor lights for an additional price also. Weird.

This is an interesting find. It's quirky and fun. I enjoyed our visit to the museum. I recommend that if you're in the area you should peek in. The price is good for the experience.

For $3.00 a pop - this was the best use of about 30 minutes to an hour. The owner really has some interesting and curious pieces and exhibits. Workers were helpful and friendly, and willing to explain anything you may have questions about. They offer...More

This place is a great entertainment for the kids whenever we are in Wilmington. It also helps that the Serpentarium is right next door.
