  • This place smells bad it has racist undertones and several of the exhibits don’t work. It’s also dirty. A must skip  more »
  • The idea behind the place is awesome, but it's in dire need of maintenance and cleaning. It's brutally honest history and I like that. With a total revamp and good cleaning it would be one of my favor...  more »
  • It's a touristy thing to do, but with all the info available today, you could skip it. Attentions to detail was excellent in the scenes, but it was difficult to hear and nothing in print at the scenes...  more »

  • So bad, it's fantastic! Go for the nostalgia and history. I'm only giving it 3 stars because a few of the exhibits don't work. They need to keep it running right. Very kitschy, in a good ol American way.
  • This is not worth the money. They are plastic not wax figures and you cannot hear one when others are touring because the sounds are all going at the same time. This is clearly a tourist trap. Some buttons don't work. There were ladders left behind and air freshners left, clearly not done by professionals.
  • me and my friend were the only 2 in the museum, pretty fun place if you're alone, real spooky too
  • It sucked it was a rip off the figures aren't wax it's plastic and not worth the money
  • Lovely place to walk around and learn history about how life was in the early times of the city of Monterey
