  • The only good thing about this place is the gift shop. Other than that you have literally two rooms - one full of badly-labelled props and a handful of oddities, then the much-vaunted "iceman" which i...  more »
  • A very small museum with pretty tight spaces. Some of it kind of neat, but no need to spend much time. They play an episode of the old series Unsolved Mysteries, ice man, not that cool. Definitely "we...  more »
  • I enjoyed my trip to this museum, so much so that I've been twice. While it is a little on the steep side for what it has it's a fun way to kill an hour. The majority of the tour will be done by yours...  more »

  • Holy hoax, Batman! I am all about the weird & entertaining, but DON'T waste your money here. It's not worth it. + staff is wildly friendly + interesting gift shop with insect Kelsey & bottled animal anomalies - the museum is the size of a bathroom; literally one room with about 15 "weird" objects - all fake artifacts including haunted skeleton, 3-headed stuffed goat & a mermaid man - side show, while entertaining, is a fake - overpriced for seeing basically nothing
  • I give it two stars simply because your staff is incredibly friendly. I see so many 5 stars and I just can't fathom why. I had a group of four and was so disappointed that I spent nearly $50. The exhibits were certainly weird but most were fake. The iceman seemed fake as well, from what could be made out from the spotty ice. The performer seemed to be miserable. The coolest part was the supposedly Johnny Depp used to rent the top apartment, which I haven't yet fact checked. I guess you need to be a believer in these legends to find most of the museum interesting.
  • Interesting but not really worth $12. A minor curiosity but with not much else to see on 6th street besides bars, it's a diversion.
  • The staff is so helpful, knowledgable, honest & kind! I accidentally left my purchase by their door & one of the employees ran it down the street to us. He was amazing! We didn't have time to visit the museum itself, but the shop was pretty neat & had a lot of interesting, out-of-the-ordinary gift ideas.
  • It's something fun to do. I don't recommend taking young kids. My 3 1/2 year old barely made it inside before freaking out. My 7 yr old came out crying because of the ghost story
