The kids wanted to go and they were entertained. It is a small collection but worth the admission price. Mirror Maze was small but had nice lighting. Overall it was a good way to spend an hour or so while downtown.

This place was excellent! Oddball by nature, but a must-see. Kids might enjoy it more (or be grossed out!), but anyone raised on Ripley's Believe It Or Not will be quite happy. This brought back childhood memories, and seeing the FeeJee mermaid, and serial killer...More

Weird and interesting but small. Really enjoyed the weird there. Mirror maze was easy but somewhat of a challenge for KY 10 year old. Kids liked it. Collection is definitely not something I would collect but to each his own. Worth the admission price and...More

This venue could either charge less, or aquire more goodies. The theme is easily expanded, as the price could be easily dropped but my view is... it sits between a rock and a hard place... 3 bucks won't break the bank, but it's not what...More

It’s only 3 dollars and gives you a 45 minute break from the heat. Teenagers would enjoy this. It’s really just a bunch of stuff put in a room. The fog machine is too much and does aggravate breathing troubles.

My 13 year old son wanted to do this and I give it 2 stars because it was an escape from the heat for a few minutes. The mirror maze was less than "a-maze-ing." Very small mirror maze and the collection of randomly placed artifacts...More

Some things are kind of creepy and morbid. It's definitely interesting. Many things you have no way of knowing if they are authentic. A good, different and creepy experience worth the $3 admission.

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.

Yes it’s bizarre. Apparently the owner of the museum collected all kinds of items - and I mean all kinds..... but when he was going to get married his bride to be said he had to get rid of it all. It looks like the...More
