  • The museum alone is pretty corny and hokey, but we knew that going in so our expectations were in the right place. I was shocked and annoyed at the cost to get vs. what you get. The hallways are cramp...  more »
  • Could have had more weird stuff to see but overall was interesting and the tour guide Sal was cool and interesting himself with a mind reading trick he did with the audience .  more »
  • Happened upon The Museum of the Weird while walking down Dirty Sixth Street. Since Austin is Weird we did not hesitate to enter. The $12.00 entrance fee did seem high. The exhibits were interesting an...  more »

  • The best museum EVER, It is worth every single penny! I went there just because it seemed cool and WOW I was blown away! The first part is cool with all the little weird creatures and animals, and the farther you get back the weirder and weirder it gets but the End which I won't spoil it for you is so cool and you have to question if it is real or not! I will definitely go back for sure!
  • Had a really good time the tour guide was very funny and adorable. They did a great job sharing little personal stories about each item that they show you the show at the end was fun not overly weird there are some posts that say that this place is not right if you are religious or if you have small children. Not exactly sure because I am none of those couldn't really see where the problem was unless you have very very small children because they do have wax museum creatures that could be scary for very very small children
  • The price would have been worth it if there was more to see. The sideshow was frightening in a way that was not entertaining. They have a crazy person performing in front of a small group in a very small room. The museum is weird. The gift store is just as cool as the exhibits. Love archie mcphee stuff
  • This is a really awesome museum they have some really unusual stuff kids absolutely loved it I had a great time, The tour was a little bit longer than we expected about 45 minutes to an hour but other than that I had no complaints had some really interesting and amazingly cool stuff, The lady behind the counter was very attractive and didn't mind helping me out at all. I have a whole group of friends or just freaks and geeks who would absolutely love this I will be recommending this place to them. Make sure to use the bathroom or eat some food before you take this to work as like I said it is about 45 minutes but it is absolutely worth it.
  • The Museum of the Weird is not just a collection of weird things. It is the preservation of a genre of American folk lore. The sideshow has been replaced with photoshop in modern culture. MoW brings us back to a simpler time. It's a great place to let your guard down and be a kid again. You don't have to believe when you go back to work, but it's fun to believe when you're there.
