  • I wasn't sure what to expect with this one but I sure enjoyed it! I love oddities and this museum is full of them, from mummies, to Bigfoot, to the attraction in the back! It's all so interested and m...  more »
  • Fun awesome place off the main block in Austin. Weird shows and cool exhibits. Amazing gift shop for those looking for something a little bit different.  more »
  • Thought it seemed like an interesting place to visit but I wouldn't recommend it. The one exhibit that's supposed to be the star of the show (the "Ice Man"), isn't even realistic-looking. It was hard ...  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
