    All the kinds of oddities in a small museum that you would expect in a traveling side-show. There is not a lot to see but it is interesting. Their show piece is the Ice Man, a character frozen in a bl...  more »

    It’s very tiny, and overpriced for what it’s worth. But it was a interesting experience. Our side show guy was hilarious but it was super cheesy.  more »

    This is located in 6th street, which is the only reason we went. We were walking by after dinner and it was open pretty late. The price wasn't horrible and the staff were nice enough. We made our way ...  more »

    This was an amazing experience! You will definitely get the weird you want but an amazing story as well. The lady at the desk was super sweet and answered our thousand questions. Mr. Black Scorpion was super rad! Awesome story, acting, everything!!! Especially love his punny humor and drive for doing what he loves. Plus he had awesome posters and buttons!!!

    Cool staff! Very welcoming and friendly! Extremely cool and unique gifts ranging from figurines to taxidermy jewelery! The entertainment was fantastic, funny and charming! Also some cool attractions in the back, definitely warrants a visit!!! Go see for yourself. Be warned, dress for heat in the summer

    Incredible experience. First you go on a self guided tour through the collection of oddities! From skeletons to mermaids and shrunken heads it gets pretty freaky. After you go on a tour through a wax museum which was pretty cool as well. What sealed the deal for me was the psychic act at the end. It was absoluletly astonishing. The man who guided the tour was also very friendly and personable. If your looking for a thrill while in Austin Texas you should definatly stop by the museum of the weird!!!!!!

    What a great place to stop in when you are in Austin! Well worth it! There are so many cool things on the walls. Take your time and look at each little thing. There is so much to see! The show was very entertaining! I can not tell you the secrets but they are incredible! Thank you Ravencraft for the history behind the exhibits. It made it even better.

    This place would be fine if it was $5 however it is more expensive than the Texas museum and art the art museum. For $13 I saw two dozen mildly interesting​ pieces and then a very crappy magic trick. It is not worth it in anyway.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
